I love Pandora for my sewing room. That way I can create my own stations with music that I like.

Many years ago I found just such a radio in the now defunct skymall catalog on a plane. It wasn't cheap back then but I got it anyway and enjoyed it for many years til it stopped working. It worked just like a car radio.

Bear, googled for that (clock radio, tape player combo) and saw some at Walmart. Probably many others out there, too.

Prism, Thank you so much! Perfect! I can just about afford the Amazon/Tecsun one! I have bookmarked it! QuiltnNan was interested in one, also. I'll pass this along to her. Do not know why my searching did not find them!

Good news for us! Prism99 has posted a couple of radios. I will probably get this one!

I finally gave in and have 2 radios since I only use 2 radio stations for the morning routine. Just leave each tuned to the station I want to listen to at the appropriate time. No more searching by the hair's width for the station!

Love it! I also have just 2 or 3 stations I like! I could put up a shelf and line it with radios!

I have often wondered why the push button type radio is not available for home radios. With all the advances in electronics, I wondered why I was the only one who wanted that feature. At least I know I'm not the only one. Checking out all the good info here. Thanks everyone.
