My sorta-godmother has been looking for a radio. She's in her 70s, isn't a technophobe but also isn't a technophile, and just wants something sturdy and relatively simple that can probably last her the rest of her life. Small enough that she could take it while driving around, something that could be plugged in to the wall normally but battery-powered in a storm emergency. Doesn't need a lot of features or fancy electronics, and definitely not connecting it to the internet or requiring a subscription, though a few simple quality-of-life features might be good, focused on ease-of-use rather than add-ons. Her hearing is fine right now.
I've been looking at reviews and writeups online, but I really don't have that great of a grasp on a lot of technical details. Any recommendations?
