Rock out in the shower or any other wet environment with the Sony ICF-S79W Weather Band Digital Shower Radio. That's not to say that the ICF-S79W isn't just as great on dry land as well. No matter where you're listening the radio can be placed on a counter or other flat surface. And, of course it can also be hung from a shower head or other fixture, using the included strap. The radio also features a non-slip grip design that makes it easy to handle when you're hands are wet.

Aside from its aesthetic qualities, the ICF-S79W also provides you with useful control and listening features. You'll benefit from one touch weather band access, in addition to the AM/FM bands, and, 20 station presets. And when it comes to tuning, the quartz synthesized tuner ensures drift-free precision. A built-in clock keeps you apprised of the time, while count down and auto shutoff timers keep you on task. Everything comes together with the conveniently placed one-finger operable controls.
