What is an MP3 player in a mini radio?

The MP3 player can play digital audio files; it attaches to your computer with a USB cable, and you will be able to transfer songs to your mini radio. Using drag and drop, you can put your music files right on your small radio. This type of radio often does not have a speaker, so headphones may be necessary. These mini radios can be good options for children and less-mobile seniors as easy operation is had through a push of the buttons. If you have a diverse preference of music, some of these radios can support up to 8,000 songs. They may come with a USB charging cable, so be sure to read the description.
