In my experience, some FM table radios have actually gotten a bit better.
Sadly, the Sony Walkman radios (analog tuned) have gotten more deaf as
time has gone on.

Some of the older FM radios I have at home are very deaf.  Even with
careful adjustment and tinkering, they're only good for the stronger local
stations.  Forget about even getting a crackle rim-shotter.  They also
suffered from drift.
