The CC Crane is one of the favorite gifts that I've ever received. It's a radio and MP3 player. The unique thing about it though is that it RECORDS radio programs! It's like a DVR recorder for the radio. Now I can record all of the shows I'd otherwise miss - especially the overnight programs. It's fun to fast forward through the commercials, so it's a time saver as well. It also has an SD card slot to add to it's already generous storage capacity. I highly recommend this radio!
