The Sony SRF-59SILVER Walkman is just a fantastic radio that offers reception of all types of music and news information from the FM/AM bands.

I admire the quality and inherent value that this Sony Walkman represents in the portable audio product category. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman radio is a small and lightweight unit that fits easily in your hand or on your belt with supplied clip. The Sony SRF-59 Walkman is a take anyplace radio that performs well under difficult seasonal conditions such as a very hot summer day. I use the Sony SRF-59 Walkman frequently when sitting poolside, at home for private listening sessions, or when I walk in my neighborhood. The supplied headphones fit comfortably over my ears for a stress-free listening experience for an extended period of time. The FM stereo reception of my favorite rock music stations sound magnificent.

It lasts a long time, THE SOUND IS GREAT
channel selector is the main problem
I have gone thru 2 of these in 20 years, wearing them when I walk out a route at work or do yard work at home. I love this radio, and was glad to find it on the web, since I can't find one in the stores anymore. The channel selector wears out after years of work, since my "favs" are at opposite ends of the spectrum.
