Hi Carol

While I didn't get the Roberts Play from John Lewis, I can tell you that it 
does have individual preset buttons you can press to store stations. The 
disadvantage with individual presets is that the physical layout of buttons 
limits the number of stations you can store. The Play only has five for each 
band, but at least they are accessible.

If you have seen the Pure Move before, then the Roberts Play is thicker than 
this, and slightly bigger in size, but certainly not too big to take on 
holiday, and the sound is pretty reasonable for a radio with a mono speaker.

I hope this helps in some way.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown
