Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The 45,000 Station Car Radio

October 4, 2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The 45,000 Station Car Radio, a device that plays live streams from local or global AM, FM, and Internet-only radio stations.

The unit plugs into a car’s 12-volt power socket and connects to an iPhone running a free app that allows you to search music stations by genre or quickly navigate through thousands of talk-radio and news stations.

An iPhone connects to the unit via Bluetooth and plays content from any audio app, including Pandora and Stitcher, or music stored on your smartphone through the car’s speakers.

“The 45,000 Station Car Radio brings unprecedented access to worldwide radio stations–all without requiring a monthly service fee like satellite radio,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager, Fred Berns.

The app allows you to assign six favorite preset stations and will even recommend radio stations based on the genres you listen to.

The 45,000 Station Car Radio also enables hands-free calling, allowing you to answer an incoming call and conduct a conversation through the device’s built-in microphone and the car speakers.

The 45,000 Station Car Radio is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/81848 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
