Looking for a clock radio suggestion.....

I have an older Sony model that works great. 

In general, Sony makes really, really good radios. Glad to hear they've brought back the cube design. That was a really good one. 

If you can find an EZ-7 on eBay, it's terrific. It's an old model, probably hasn't been made in fifteen years, but super-easy to set, with actual knobs to pick the alarm time.

They can be found but in some cases they have FM only.I have an older Sony AM-FM in the kitchen while the bedroom has Memorex FM only but with bluetooth..so you might get WBZ AM etc via your smartphone and use bluetooth to play over speakers.

I also have an HD portable in the bedroom and can get some AM stations via HD2s...WRKO (100.7 HD2), WXKS (94.5 HD2), WBZ AM (107.9 HD2) and WRCA Bloomberg (92.9 HD2) though if you're close enough to Boston or Newburyport it's also on 106.1. But if the signal is iffy the HD2 cuts in and out as I found today trying to hear WRKO via 100.7 HD2
