The Deal Wizard has been mocked at his house for being prepared. His emergency kit was tagged with a "Zombie Attack Supplies" label. Undaunted, the Wizard suggests that you make a list of the things you'll need in case of emergency. A battery powered radio should be on that list.
You might want to consider this American Red Cross Emergency Radio for $20. It can charge via solar or even by a built-in hand crank. The unit also has a USB port to boost your cell phone for a quick call or text.
With this radio you get AM, FM and NOAA Weather radio bands. Did we mention the LED flashlight?
Now this hand crank won't be producing hours of power without lots of cranking... so you'll want to make sure this radio stays on the DC charger until you need it.
You'll need to order this Radio Shack item online to get the deal. It may not be in stock at your local store!
