Do you enjoy singing in the shower? Catching up with the top 40 on a Sunday evening whilst relaxing in the bath? No, just me then! I was bought the shower radio for my birthday and it is a real gem. I love listening to songs in the bath and this means that I do not have to worry about it getting wet. The downsides are that you only really have a few basic radio channels and the others do not really pick up very well.
==Price and availability==
The cost of the radio is £19.99 and it is available from Amazon and electronic shops. It is the sort of item that would make a very good Christmas present.
This is a small portable radio that comes with a built in handle so you can hang it over the shower unit. The design of the radio means it can be splashed and used in the water. The radio has a manual tuner and you can get FM and MW. There is also a clock which can be used to preset times. You can set the radio to turn off at a certain time. The radio has a handle which is anti-slip and easy to hold. The radio has volume controls and the unit goes quite high but at the highest point it sounds a little like it is being played through a tin can.
The radio has rubber feet so it stands on the bath side easily or you can use the handle and hang it in the shower. The machine has a little cord aerial but to pick up Radio one and two you do not need it. You can preset up to twenty stations which is easy to do. The radio always displays the clock but when the radio is on, you will only see the radio frequency. The radio looks really good as it is silver and stylish and it fits in well in my bathroom. I have had no mechanical problems with the radio and it is very easy to pick up and use.
I have never had a proper shower radio before so the concept is quite novelty. I love being able to listen to the radio in my morning shower as it allows me to prepare for the day ahead. I think the quality of the item is high and as it quite functional as you can stand it on its feet or hang it up. The radio plays well and the sound quality is good, the only concern occurs when the sound it turned up really high. The radio has easy to press buttons and the fact you can programme it to turn off when you want means you can time your shower and get out when it turns off!
