Do you know another brand or name for this radio?
One of the best things about Radio Shack was their computer.
It showed what they sold and, within the limits of accurate inventory,
how many each store had.
Plus, they had the manual for everything going all the way back afa my
I bought this radio for my mother, so she'd be able to change stations
more easily, with the push of a button. I looked and there were
very few AC radios with push-button tuning, let alone table radios.
(And that's still true afaik**
, 25 years later.)
But Radio Shack had one. Now I've forgotten how it works and RS is
struggling to get back up.
So... Do you know another name for this radio?
If it's made under another name, and most things are made under more
than one brand, maybe I can find the manual.
I searched on the RS names, Chromatic 292 12-1592 and found a manual
for $25, but that's too much. I think it's more than the radio cost!
I bought a push-button radio at Target about 10 years ago, but for
the alarm clock, not the radio**
. It does have push button tuning,
but the speaker is tiny and the sound is terrible, and if I say that
with my low standards (and who listens mostly to talk) you know it's
true. They don't seem to sell anything like this anymore, but it has
two alarms, plus a Nap setting up to 2 hours (I wish the nap setting
went up to 14 hours); the volume of the alarm buzzer starts low and
gets louder, so you're not jarred awake by a loud noise and so if
someone else is there, there's a better chance she won't be wakened
also; and it's small (hence the bad sound).
I was hoping they would eventually sell a model with the
improvements I wanted, but instead they sell nothing like it now.
