LPFM station WTSQ-LP 88.1FM Charleston, WV, USA, wtsq.org , is doing their annual fund drive and offering perks. But, check out this perk! A single FM FREQ radio set to RX only 88.1MHz. Is this a regenerative receiver? Scroll down from this link to check out this perk.   https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wtsq-88-1-fm-charleston-wv-annual-fundraiser-2019#/

Its not really a single frequency radio since it can be tuned, even though the tuning is a bit inconvenient.

That mason jar "public radio" looks like a terrific way to compete with smart speakers. Hopefully it sounds as good.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
