When I was 11 years old, I was given a hand-held Telefunken shortwave radio as a gift. I spent many days and nights searching the dial for music and news from around the world. While this clever little radio won’t provide the magic of international shortwave listening, it does offer the opportunity to discover radio stations in 18 different cities around the globe.
The minimalist CityRadio is comprised of a simple player with interchangeable modular city buttons, the device lets you instantly tune into radio stations in your city of choice. Users just press the city you want to listen to, and the radio does the rest. Additional cities can be swapped easily, providing access to radio stations from all over the world. The randomness of the programming makes it a delightful experience, kind of like a virtual trip around the world.
