OK - some pictures now.
Here's a picture of the radio, a JVC Radio Cassette Recorder model RC-250C.
It's a fairly old model, I'm sure. I'm guessing 1970's or 1980's.
But it has good reception / features and is fairly portable.
I needed to make some sort of cover for the battery compartment in the bottom, or else the 4 D cells fall out. Cover was missing when someone gave me the radio.
