Great for R4 (and cricket) lovers!,
This review is from: Roberts R9924 Sports 924 3-Band Portable Radio with Long Wave (Electronics)
As a Radio 4 addict, who likes to listen while working around the house and garden, I adore these radios. So few decent LW receivers are available nowadays that these are a real find in terms of both sound quality and size.
I'm currently on my third of these little Roberts but the turnover is not due to any fault in the product - quite the reverse. Because they are so light and reception is so good I tend to take them everywhere, often to places where they should not really be taken (e.g. on boats) and treat them in a manner for which they were not designed (e.g. dropping them repeatedly from great heights)!
So if you know anyone who likes to listen to test match cricket, or uses radio to keep them company while doing housework or any job which requires them to move around, this would make a superb present.
