Don’t laugh, but I have a very old red Ball and Chain AM radio from the early 70’s on my night stand.
It comes in very handy during power outages.
But the best thing of all is, Every time I turn on that noisy, annoying sounding radio, it takes me back to my early teenage years and me telling my mom I just had to receive it for Christmas because it was just so “COOL” : )
