    Disappointing

    The volume on the first radio I ordered cut in and out, and a major AM station in my city (KMOX - "The Voice of St. Louis") didn't come in well. It also rattled like something was loose inside, so I ordered another and returned the first one. The second works better, but I still cannot get loud volume for KMOX, and the volume has begun cutting in and out occasionally on other stations. I would have ordered a different product the second time, but I didn't see any other similar options. There were either pocket radios or larger radios with a CD player. I want a small radio to sit on my kitchen counter. Another problem is that I usually have to slightly adjust the tuner from one use to another even when listening to the same station. I don't know if I accidentally hit the tuner when I turn it off or if it doesn't hold its position well.

    High interference, tuning difficult

    Bought for Mother in nursing home to replace her larger radio. This looked fine as it was cheap, small, and basic. The tuning was not easy (the knob turned just fine) as an AM station would not come in gradually but bang, all of a sudden. One little bump and the station was gone. I live in the city where stations are plentiful so this should have been a piece of cake. High interference from electrical sources, much worse that my cheap transistor radio from the 60's. It was a disappointment. Maybe I need to save up for a C Crane

    Excellent portable radio that runs on AC current or size "C" batteries. Battery power coupled with AM radio capability, makes it the perfect radio during emergencies & FM capability allows you to listen to music with a decent quality. Don't understand why it's so hard to find AM capable radios these days, when AM is still primary source of emergency broadcasts. This is a find radio for a low price.

    I like this radio. Does not take up a lot of space on my desk. I do have to move it to different spots on my desk to get better reception once in awhile but not a big deal to me. It is a cute little thing. I had a big boom box on desk before. Not the same great sound as a traditional boom box but still acceptable. On the other hand it does have a better sound than the old transistor radios from years ago. I would buy again

    Since I began buying audio equipment Jensen meant good quality. I know a lot of time has past. The name got my attention. Scenario: Wife needs bathroom radio. Made purchase online. With the amenities of the 60's it was the perfect fit for the job. Wife is happy , I am thrilled. Just your basic beach, bath and beyond radio.

    Portable radio like the good old days

    My wife wanted a small portable radio and this one is just the ticket. It uses C cells, so that's a big plus over AA or AAA. There's also an AC cord, so that's cool. AM and FM tuning is pretty easy with a big dial for arthritic fingers to manipulate. Off and on is intuition obvious. This thing will keep her company.

    I was looking for a small radio for my kitchen to listen to talk radio while I cook. This takes up little space and has a fine sound for talk radio. I don't listen to music, so I don't know how the quality is for that, but for my purpose, it's perfect.

    Bought this for my mother because she wanted a radio that she could use when the power goes out. She just wanted something basic and this fit the bill. She loves it! It's small so she can carry it with her and the sound is fine.
