For those who like to mix the old with the new, the Crosley Attic Radio Speaker will be a welcome gift. The working AM/FM tuner with analog display and large knobs promises clear tones through its AroundSound technology that eliminates “hot” spots no matter where it is placed. Even better, the 7.5 x 5.25 x 5.75-inch wooden radio doubles as a speaker for MP3 players or other audio components. You can get one for $98.00, but this is an online only price.
