MY RADIO KILLED LARRY. SAD FACE.
on December 27, 2016
Cute little radio bought on Amazon for the even cuter price of $44. Bought to fit on that tiny plastic-form ledge that holds your Q-Tips jar and desperately trying to do it's job potpourri, this radio was perfect for listening to NPR and maybe mid rock, although it's speaker is too small and tinny to crank up to Sabbath or Slayer volume but for a waterproof shower radio, it was perfect. It just about fit on that even smaller ledge in the plastic formed shower unit that blesses your typical SoCal apartment but it had fallen a few times but held it's own until the very end when the protective plastic covered buttons gave way and water finally seeped inside my beloved little radio, taking Larry Mantle with it.
I'm now trying to figure out whether to purchase an iFox Bluetooth shower speaker to suction cup to my shower door to pair with my iPhone in the other room, or buy a Sangean Bluetooth waterproof radio for Little and even Littler ledge, or buy a Bluetooth-FM shower speaker. Decisions decisions. Unfortunately, I won't buy another Sony because the new scoffable price of nearly $200 is beyond reasoning for the model bought for $44 five years ago but the newer version price of $99 is still way too steep for what it is, a decent albeit mono-tinny speaker housed in a little white plastic case that will eventually let water seep in.....and don't think that the new twee plastic strap is gonna tempt me, Sony. Sorry.
