Hot death of a perfect clock radio, By Mark Morford
Hi! Do you like jazz? Do you like radio? Do you like being exactly one hour early for everything for most of the winter and well into early spring? You do? Are you ever in luck!

Have I got an opportunity for you. Behold, here is my beloved Boston Acoustics clock radio, called the Recepter. Ever heard of this little sonic wonder? It's sort of famous as high-end clock radios go, has earned a cult following for its surprisingly rich, warm sound, deep bass, easy functionality. It was 200 bucks when it was new, so you know it must be cool. They don't even make them anymore.

But now this amazing radio can be yours! For like, 20 bucks! Or maybe 10!

Did I mention the small catch? There's one small catch. The little dial that changes the stations, which is the same one that changes the time, recently stopped working. Like, last week. Outta nowhere, for no apparent reason, done. Just spins and spins. No way to reset the time, set the alarm, or change the station. I have no idea why, but it made me very sad indeed.
