Decent Clock let down by Bad Radio Electronics,
This review is from: Roberts Chronoplus2 FM/MW Dual Alarm Clock with Instant Time Set (Electronics)
I have had two of these (first returned faulty in 2 months).
This review covers both:
Time setting OK, clock function OK, radio - when it works has nice quality sound BUT...
Awful to listen to, because neither radio could hold the signal. It drifts in and out by itself, causing interference and bad sound.
I've fiddled with aerial and tuning. No change. And I've moved; it's the same in both places.
It's almost as if the radio has no AFC - Automatic Frequency Control. This has been standard since the 1960's as a radio design feature - an electronic circuit which makes small tuning adjustments to track the strongest signal (the effect: stays on-channel).
Hm. When it's going it's great; 2 mins later it's squeaking and buzzing.

Helpful review for giving consideration if you are going to be using the radio feature(s) that do not seem to work well in staying tuned.
