That sounds interesting because the AM/FM Amp must be bad on the radio. Can barely hear the radio with the volume all the way up. The volume on the cassette player is O.K. I thought that they would have used the same power supply but I guess not. Haven't had time to look into that. Dirtrider, what is the radio called and where would I find one. The opening looks too narrow for the regular replacements that I have seen.
