Not much of a music radio, but OK for weather. Many pages of directions, but what it does not do is to stop with the alerts after I have heard the first one. The alert beeping keeps repeating and repeating. For exapmle, if there is a servere thunderstorm warning issued for your area from 1AM to 4AM, the radio will keep turning itself on and beep as it replays the warning every 10 minutes or so until the warning ends. In real life use, this is a bit annoying.
