no Premium or fancy, but when a hurricaine knocks out my power (here in Miami) i get out my Panasonic mono-cassette-am/fm radio for news & entertainment. takes 4 D cells. battery life is exceptional- i haven't ever had to change them in the middle of waiting for FPL to turn the lights back on. reception is A+ (with an unusually long antenna) on both bands. plays all my (hundreds of) tapes, plus news about the storm, music, etc. has a built in microphone which makes very good recordings considering. will also record the radio broadcasts, or whatever else you can connect to the input jacks. probably cost $40-$50 new a loonngg time ago. very rugged case, too. i am waiting for it to break but it just keeps working year after (years).
