My old proton clock radio has a ramp-up volume which increases gradually to the volume it was left at, over about 10 sec. I think that there are current models that do the same.

Guys, I think you missed the point.
If I understand Chazz correctly, his long lost radio would drop the audio level by a half or third when put into sleep mode ( lullaby music ) for 30 to 60 minutes then go silent.
Then, just when you get to the good part of your dream, BAM!! , it scares the bejesus out of you at full volume! (slight exaggeration)
I do not use an alarm clock anymore. I seem to wake up at the same time every day (Damn!). Are there any manufacturers that implement this feature?
If I misunderstood the premise, please ignore.
Jamscience is the one that got it though it did not have ramp down featur.Just nice low level and in morning BAM!But I think there must have been those that had ramp down feature and I can't belive either diminsiing as you go to sleep or fixed to allow same that there isn't the same in many proiducts.It has to be out there it's such a no brainer!But you look at some products (most recently a JBL Ipod dock/clock and for $500 or some crazy amount i didn't have it.Guess I am going to have to find the one I had or spend rediculous ammount of time searching for something that makes as much sense as power steering or disc versus drum brakes.
