The goods news? It looks like this non-DSP radio is a good MW AM performer. But, FM might be ehhh, while SW sucks. There's the spoilers, now here's the meat & potatoes,    https://radiojayallen.com/panasonic-rf-562d-retro-design-am-fm-sw-portable-radio/

I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

Looks like a decent radio. Obviously, SW is included just as a novelty, but being that little is really out there on SW right now, the 'crowded' dial that Allen complains about really is a non-issue.

Glad to read that it's good on MW.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
