The Ultimate Travel Radio

This is a great little radio for traveling. Takes up no room in a suit case. You can listen to quality stereo and no matter where you are in the US you can get local weather forecasts at the push of a button.

Couldn’t ask for more!

I LOVE my pocket radio. This is my fourth radio I’ve bought from C.Crane. It has great sound quality, is easy to use, long battery life, and I love their idea of having basic instructions printed on the inside of the battery compartment. You can’t go wrong with this rugged little radio!

Crane CC Pocket Radio

“The CC Pocket is an excellent value… It’s a Walkman-style radio …with a built-in speaker for utility use…this is particularly useful if you use the radio for NOAA Weather Alerts …  The CC Pocket covers standard AM and FM as well as the 7 NOAA Weather Band frequencies and runs on 2 AA batteries. The CC Pocket Radio from C.Crane is a very cool new addition to their catalog.” Read more by RadioJayAllen here: https://radiojayallen.com/c-crane-cc-pocket/

Why the CCRadio-EP Was Built – by Bob Crane

The CCRadio-EP was built for my mother. I asked her one day if she was enjoying her CCRadioPlus digital radio I gave her. With a little prodding she looked at me in a way only a mother can and she said: “I don’t like all the buttons”. About six months later, a customer came in the store in a focused rush and asked for a radio “without all the buttons… just a regular radio”. I knew at that moment we had to build the EP. It would seem like building a simple AM/FM analog radio without all the bells and whistles would be a simple process, but in reality sometimes it’s making something simple that is the most difficult. It was 6+ years and several meetings, revisions and trips to the manufacturers to get this radio right.

Now back to my mother. I know she is smart. She drove safely until she was over 90 and she still continues to watercolor on a limited basis. She did not start painting until she was well into her 80’s. The point is my mother did not want to spend her valuable time learning some sequence of buttons perpetrated by a somewhat insensitive electronics expert (namely me).

We’ve had a great response to this radio. One of the best was a call from a woman in charge of a music department at a university. She said she was prepared to get ripped off with the purchase of the CCRadio-EP but was wildly surprised at the audio quality alone.
If you’re looking for a simple radio with good performance at a reasonable price, the CCRadio-EP is an excellent choice.
