The best radio I ever owned
Just like simple plain radioes! Sound is great and moves around easy. Thank you for having the radio available.

It’s a portable radio that works just fine. Great sound, even outside!
The tuner knob is stiff. The radio tips easy. All in all it is a fine product.
Wanted a radio for my shop, but portable, and not expensive. Found this one by Radio Shack and have had it for a week. Like it very much- excellent reception- simple controls- it picks up a lot of stations (more than I will listen to), and the sound quality is good, a problem with other radios. In addition it is attractive and has plug-in or battery power capability. I would definitely buy this again. EJohnson, Louisville, Tn
AM/FM RADIO WORKS GREAT TOM RICH
It's a nice radio. It sounds good

This radio, # 1200889 picks up more stations than my clock radio, home stereo or any pocket radio i have or had and with battery's. Plugged in which is as good too. And weather is good.
Nice outdoor radio. Great reception, easy to use. Very fast service..
Great Radio. Sound is amazing!
The weather channel is helpful and informative , especially during winter time. If a hi-fi stereo in this radio is provided, it will be much better.
I bought the radio for my mom. The only radio she ever liked. She lives in a remote area where she swears this radio is the only radio that comes in clear. She listens to Navajo Nation KTNN.
great clear am-fm radio...
Exactly what I had been wanting for quite a while. Super product and super service.
The tuning knob is small and rounded, not good for elderly fingers and with very stiff rotation, fingers come off... tough to tune one-handed
Bought these 2 radios as gift as I liked the 2 I already had so well. They operate well and last a long time (many, many, many years). Will continue to buy these for gifts or for myself when I need to.
I own two of this model radio I bought several years ago. Both work flawlessly; I just run them both on batteries. This radio has great sound and has no trouble broadcasting both AM and FM stations. I’ve never used the weather band. I would definitely recommend this purchase.
It is an outstanding radio.
Fourteen years of faithful service.
i got it to take out in the yard to listen to, i was hoping to get the topeka radio station 50
miles away and yes, great reception, and on batteries, who says they dont makem like they used too,
ive allways loved radio shack, i still have my 1970;s realistic 8 track player
I love Radio Shack. I grew up with you guys and was disapointed when my local store closed. Only through Facebook did I realize that you are still there. Keep up the good work.
Gets excellent reception. Looks great and easy to move around. I love it.
Definitely something that I needed that has the weather band on it the signal is very strong and the am FM is very strong as well. Good quality and durable radio.
The tuner knobs and overall tuning system seems weak, loose, or imprecise compared to a couple other units of this model that we have purchased in the past. The quality seems to have suffered compared to the ones we bought about 10 years ago.
Took me long enough to get it. It works well for being a basic AM/FM Weather radio. When there is a "Grid Down" , AM Radio you can get information from great distances.
It’s lightweight and has been great so far.
The sound is good and it picks up a lot of stations.
I would buy it again.
Installed the new 'C' cell carbon batteries I purchased on Amazon and turned it on. Am radio in this area is very limited but I was still able to pick up a couple stations. The Weather Band had three active stations telling the area weather and alerts for different sections of North and South Carolina. The FM is fantastic, picks up and locks in on many stations. The PLL works great and music sound is very good also. I recommend this portable radio highly; Radio Shack also has the table version which is likely good also.
The tone is wonderful coming from this AM/FM radio. Picks up lots of stations.
Will use weather function during hurricane season here in Florida.
Really like the radio but won’t work with batteries.
I love the radio it is the best
SERVICE Very good & prompt service.
Like the cord storage compartment
Ordered. Just what I wanted. Got here quickly. Thank you. I know my 89 yr. Old mom is going to love it.!!
FM is excellent. AM is excellent in stations over 1000 kHz. I am having trouble getting stations below 1000 kHz in at least inside my apartment. The AM antenna is supposedly internal. Is there a way to connect an external antenna to the internal one to get better reception ? Except for that it is a good product just AM lower stations 550 - 1010 have a problem. I have an old radio that only gets only the lower AM stations in so I have, in a way, all of the stations. The weather channels have no problem at all.
It has static even with the antennae up and the sound is tinny.
I really like my radio.
Radio was sent as a GIFT station wanted came in well when called WAS Enjoying IT.
You advertised a Analog radio and it isn't.
Great reception in an area that was previously difficult. Stations lock in and are clear and drift free.
Love the look of this radio. The audio is great quality. Very functional and light weight. Love it.
GOOD EMERGENCY RADIO. VERY SATISFIED.
Love it. light weight and good sound.
Works great and picks up some of the weakest stations where I live. This is my second radio I have bought (same model) and it is as good or better than the one I bought in 2013!
When I took the cord out to plug in, I couldn’t get the cover I had to remove to fit flush back on the radio. I expected it to sound better. Also I find the tuning knob hard to turn when standing and radio is sitting on a table.
This radio is exactly what it looks like, a simple to operate AM/FM/WX radio, sturdily made, with no learning curve to operate. Just turn on, flip switch for radio band, turn tuning and volume knobs to suit. The volume is acceptably loud, sound is fairly good, FM reception is good, as is the weather band with two sources coming in clearly. My AM environment is interference challenged, so I can't properly give an opinion on reception or clarity. This is , again, what it seems, a garage or driveway weather ready tri band radio, plastic but sturdy plastic, easy to use. Put this in your garage and it may just still be there twenty years from now.
Several months ago we had a rare power outage that lasted over an hour. During this time I vowed to my wife that I would buy her a simple, reliable, battery powered, analog radio. I did some looking and found this Radio Shack beauty and the price was right. It exceeds our expectations. Thank you Radio Shack. This Radio reminds me of a Radio from my teen years in the summer of 1959. Great product!
I am very disappointed with this radio. The speakers were ok but I could not get all my favorite stations. The tuner dial was sticking and did not pick up my favorite stations. After about 3 weeks I was unable to even turn it on. I then tried to return it to the local Radio Shack Store, a 45 min drive each way. I was told that because they are a dealer and I ordered online that I would need to contact where I bought it from. I will say that I didn't even try. At the time I was in the middle of a kitchen remodel, developed a major health issue and managed to misplace it for a while. I do have the radio now but realize the 90 day warranty is up. I know this is not the manufacturers fault just my own for not responding in a timely manner.
Dial could have bigger "bumps" on it to make it easier to hold and dial.
It is a really nice radio. The plus side would include good reception, good looks, nobs and switches all work well and has an ok sound. The minus side would be just one speaker behind the nice stainless front, it’s okay for talk and news but could be a richer sound for music. This is not quite up to par with my decades old R/S model made in Japan not China. I don’t want to be anti China products but it does seem they have taken over many many products and markets.
Had exact radio before! Bought at local store. Store now closed. When my first radio was damaged by leaking battery, I looked for replacement and found same radio on line, and was shocked to see Radio Shack was still in business?

Great radio. Build is a little light, but that's a common gripe I have among all the newer sets I've seen on the market. Well worth the sale price. Seems sensitive enough. I actually like the analog dial, but I'm a bit of a Luddite at times. Get one for your storm kit.
Always have a radio in my bathroom and this is the best one I’ve ever had. I love it.
We loved our Radio Shack radio so much that we ordered another one for a different room. It was a great price and delivered swiftly. It’s perfect in every way. We have always enjoyed shopping at Radio Shack.
On mine the red LED light is on all the time even when off tuned from a station. I am not sure if that is correct. I have had other radios where the light lit up only when you had a station tuned in good. The tuning knob is a little small to work as well. Overall for the price the radio meet my expectations. It also seems to be a pretty sturdy unit.
Nice unit! Love the anolg dial really can adjust and tune in many station's I could not get on other Radio!
For the price, this radio is disappointing. It feels like a cheap imported $12 radio. Not worth the money, and can get something with the same cheap imported quality at Walmart, for less money,
Fast service. Very good value. Radio sounds great.
Item arrived in timely manner. Radio was easy to use and like that it will also run on batteries.
A Christmas gift for my 9 year old. He likes the weather feature. Good size for him to carry around.
Well made and enjoyable!
works great for a small radio
The site was easy to navigate and delivery was on time.
Nice radio! Gets clear reception. Would buy it again.
Great portable radio for the money
I am very pleased with this radio. My only very small issue is the audio fidelity has a bit more "highs" in the audio than I prefer. A small capacitor across the speaker should roll off the highs so its lets sharp in the high frequency end. A tone switch to do that would have been nice. All in all, a very good portable go to radio for the price.
Good weather radio
It’s a good weather radio, am and fm come in clearly,too. No emergency alert stand-by feature. Well built as is my old Radio Shack weather am/fm radio which is over 13 years old. Would have liked an ear phone to have been included.
My mother likes her’s, also.
Good radio for me.
Getting good reception in Manhattan, NY without extending the antenna.
I only listen to FM.
THE RADIO IS GREAT AND I AM ENJOYING IT VERY MUCH.
I GET ALL MY AM STATIONS. THE RADIO IS BUILT VERY WELL. ALL THE CONTROLS ARE GOOD AND VOLUME IS FINE. I USE IT EVERY DAY. THANKS FOR MAKING A RADIO THAT RECIEVES ALL STATIONS AND IS EASY TO USE.
Just what I was looking for.
I keep mine in my van. I don't need or want a smart phone so, if I'm out hunting, fishing or trapping and the weather looks questionable, I just tune in the NWS channel. If I'm just changing a fly or lure, I'll listen to music. I do wish the knobs were more finger friendly, easier to grip and turn. Sound quality is good for what I use it for.
This is my fourth attempt to purchase a radio that will receive broadcasts here in the mojave desert north of the san bernardino mountains, north of the los angeles basin. Fourth time is a charm I suppose. A most excellent radio. Gets all the LA stations, am/fm. I get 640am, the bill handle show loud and clear! I take it out in the field while working and at home in the house as well. The sound quality is quite acceptable for the what it is. I recommend this radio and give it 5 stars.
You cant find radios much, but i did at Rasio Shack. My dad loved it. He had been looking for one, so for Father's day this is what I gave him. He loved it and said it picks up all stations and the sound is great.
Really Nice Radio!
This is a really nice excellent well built radio that has easy to use volume knob and tuning dile! Since it has a built-in antenna, I am able to tune in my favorite music and talk radio stations loud and clear! Well worth the money!
My wife uses this radio by the pool. It is well built and reliable. Radio Shack has always made great products.
Really nice radio
I have always loved Radio Shack products. I sure miss their store in my town.
Finally I found a radio I like. It is nice looking, simple, good size for carrying around.
Very compact & handy
Like not having to figure out digital mess with stations but just turn the dial
Good clarity too and nice having NOAA in safe room.
For my hurricane prep kit
The radio works on C batteries when the power is out, picks up NOAA weather stations well, is sturdy and I'm thrilled.
Exactly what I was looking for! I bought this radio for my 82 yr old Mom. She wanted to listen to music instead of listening to the TV talk about this Covid 19 ALL the time. Easy to use and the stations come in beautifully! I will be buying this for myself because it will also be a great weather radio and the handle is perfect for a quick grab n go.
Very pleased with this item
Great radio !
This radio is a great find! Stays on the station, and very clear tone. My little treasure with no complications...easy least!!
No frills. Plug in or battery, AM or FM. All analog.
Baseball games during yard work.
It works great
Just what I was looking for. I can find the stations needed. Has a sturdy handle.
I like the size, the sound, and the accuracy of the dial. The cord fits into the back of the radio when I want to put in batteries and listen in the garden, so no lost cord. The only improvement I would like to see is a better knob for dialing in stations. I have hand problems so moving from one station to another is harder than it should be. I like that the knob needs effort to turn. That means the radio will stay on station when I move it. If the knob had higher ridges, was a little bigger, or something to help turn it, the radio would be pretty perfect. I am considering buying another.
This AM/FM Weather Tabletop Radio is versatile, lightweight, portable & with it’s slim design fits anywhere without taking up space. Rugged construction & has 25 hours of playing time per set of batteries. My favorite radio!!!
I bought one of these over 20 years ago, when the local Radio Shack store was still open. It's been a good one, still works great. My wife and I listen to it every day, we've gotten our moneys worth out of it!
Sharon in NJ
Great radio! Clear, old type reception :-)
Love the old style turn knob. Much better than the electronic search and find. Brings in AM and FM clearly. AM for weather, news, etc from Philly 30+ miles away. Bought two. Gave second one to friend's father. He likes it too.

I bought this radio on line N was surprised at how easy it was to order this radio. I selected standard shipping N it took 8 days for it to arrive. The radio is just what I wanted The only problem I have with this radio is the size of the tuning knob N it seems a little stiff. Other than that it's a great radio, comes in very clear on all 3 channels, AM, FM n weather. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'll give this radio a 15.
Easy to set in the bathroom, comes in clear. I’ve always bought radios from radio shack when I was younger no complains here.
Outstanding analog radio
This is actually the second one I've owned - I replaced the first one after at least 15 years of great service - maybe more than 20, I don't know. This radio is exactly the same as my old one - nothing that I can tell has changed. But after too any times dropping it (at least 3) the antennae broke off and while it still performs pretty well, I decided to get a new one.
Sound is great, reception is great, battery life is great. It's quite narrow and easily fits on the bathroom window sill which is why I got it in the first place. It's a wonderful radio.
LOVE MY RADIO!
The radio is lovely, beautiful clear sound, easy to find stations, and great to carry anywhere. Love it!
Best Radio Shack Radio
Very pleased with the product. Nice size which fits in
my kitchen perfect. This little mighty radio has good clear sound without any static and has good design. Have made past purchases of radio shack radios and have been pleased with every purchase Thanks radio shack for having this type of radio available to the baby boomer generation who like to listen to a good quality radio!!!
This radio is a throwback as to when this is all we had for audio communication reception.
A fun little gadget.
Great radio love it plays clear love the style
Finding a good radio is very difficult. Radio Shack had just what I wanted. Highly recommended. Thanks Radio Shack.
