Where can I buy a radio?

I'm trying to find a fairly ordinary portable FM radio, but everything seems to be DAB now. I really don't want the expense or the battery consumption, but good old FM radios seem to be history.

This is what I want:

FM radio with reasonable sound quality [1]
Battery powered
A few channel presets

[1] nothing special, but not something out of a Christmas cracker!

Any ideas?

John

Hi,

I have one of these which has proved to be good over the years.

Picks up radio all over Europe and probably the world.

Not waterproof though if your going to take it near a boat.

I'm sure it's lovely, but I was thinking of nearer £20 than £65!
