Product Description

Sony's lightweight SRF-M37 Personal Radio fits securely to your belt or waistband for hands-free listening during work-outs or travel. The radio's ergonomic design places all function controls for easy access. Radio features include drift-free digital tuning across AM/FM/LW stereo bands. A local/distant (DX) switch optimises reception of both near and distant stations. Six-direct-key preset memory lets you electronically tune in to any six stations set--even in different frequency bands--with the press of a single, easy-to-reach button.

You'll also enjoy conveniences such as 24-station preset memory (12 FM, 6 AM and 6 LW), a digital clock, a battery indicator, supplied stereo headphones, and single-battery operation (1 AAA battery, not included).

I was so pleased to see that this personal radio from Sony was still available! After many years of loyal service its predecessor packed up on me last week. Without exception it had given me years of loyal service( despite having fallen asleep many times with it switched on and it fallen on to the bedroom floor!) So I was "mourning" its passing. Never thought I would still find it available so thank you Amazon and K.K. Electronics.
Regarding the Long wave version...I received my replacement today and whilst it wasnt a personal issue for me, I was fortunate it had Long Wave band.Sony SRF-M37L Personal Radio
If its lasts as long as the one it replaced then I will be more than happy. I have a DAB (not Sony) personal radio as well but consider this Sony analogue radio to be far superior and easier in terms of use. Those of you who own a battery powered DAB portable radio will be aware that they "eat" batteries, whereas this little gem lasts for quite a long time on one little AAA battery. Superb piece of kit...all radio lovers buy this now whilst they are still available and before it disappears under the DAB revolution!
Update August 2010! So impressed with this radio that I have just purchased another! It will be years before the current model packs (adjudged on how long I had the first model for) but I wanted to ensure I had a replacement when it does. Take my advice and buy another whilst stocks last. Its a really robust piece of kit and will give years of good service.

I like radios, I hate poor quality and poor perfomance which is usually found in cheap nasty radios with obscure names you get from the likes of discount stores.

That said, my Sony SRF-M37L has the most remarkable sound and quality and robustness which would never be found in a cheap £3 nasty, ok you need to pay a bit more for a radio which will not let you down but what you get with this little gem of a Sony you will treasure.

I did read a review by one guy who pointed out that the radio would switch itself on accidentally, well thats a load of tosh!

Do you think Sony would ever allow that to happen? What this reviewer did n't realise is there is a 'lock off' switch to prevent this, maybe he should have kept the radio a little longer before writing a review.

Thinking of buying a Sony SRF-M37L? Do it! you shall not be disapointed, Long Wave, Medium Wave and 2 Waves of FM to get all of your favourite stations locked in, complete with the ease of use you would be pressed to find better. By the way, I was so pleased with the first one bought I then got another for my wife and she loves it.

Be careful ordering this radio on the Amazon site. You will find if you look that there are two Sony SRF M37 Personal radios advertised by Amazon, and they are in fact different!!?? I thought I had ordered the Sony SRF-M37 with 'long wave' radio, as recommended by John Friel, but this was NOT the radio I was supplied with. Instead, as M Van der Velde says in his review I got an AM/FM radio designed for the US market, presumably manufactured for when the US was due to convert to digital signals. This meant it included a 'TV' channel band, and a weather band, both of which actually appear to do nothing in the UK. I have given the radio two stars, because it does work reasonably well as an AM/FM radio, but this is just me being generous. The radio I ordered should have had long wave (for the cricket mainly) and this one doesn't, so I have been sold a pup. I am in the process of complaining to Amazon, who hopefully will adjust their advertising and realise the mistake they have made!

This was exactly as I had hoped, and the previous reviews really helped me choose it. I did some research and realised that I wanted a very simple radio for use when walking, so spending £60-£80 on a DAB radio wasn't what I needed. It has to be said that it looks a little old fashioned - it is an old model - and my son said it looked 'out of the ark', however, although small enough to be neat and with a handy belt clip, the buttons are simple to use because they are a reasonable size. The whole design is simple and clear, with no searching each time for channels. I have a radio app for my smartphone, but it requires downloading of data each time you use it if you are not in a wi-fi area, which costs far too much. This wee radio only uses an AA battery every few months! great. The reception is ok, goes a bit crackly every now and again, but I'm very happy with it all in all.

I wanted a small personal radio with good quality stereo sound through earphones that is simple to set up and use. This radio ticks all the boxes.

I listen to a radio mainly at night so it has to be easy to use in the dark: it is, as the bands and preset stations are simple to select. I listen to all kinds of music from light to classical, and I have been delighted with the results in stereo FM.

All broadcast bands are well received (AM and LW bands require the radio to be appropriately oriented of course). LW for me is handy: this Sony gives good reception for a French station I listen to - some more advanced radios I have had in the past have not received this station clearly.

Make sure you select the model number finishing with L if you want LW. It works well on a single AAA rechargeable battery, and battery life is good. There are 6 presets each for AM and LW, and 12 for FM.

Aesthetically Sony has avoided slickness in favour placing all functions clearly in a compact case. It is pleasant to hold. Overall, this Sony is a delight to use. It is very good value for money.

Also after considerable use durability looks very good.
