Only two hits on Google for Crown CDN 190. It looks like it's a radio/alarm clock, in which case the 9v battery is usually just to retain the alarm setting if there's a mains failure. The radio tuning is generally manual (via a rotary knob) with all the lack of precision that entails. You ideally need an FM radio with a digital tuner i.e. one that scans for strong signals and allows you to select and set them as "favourites" - like a car radio does. I found this cheap and cheerful one on Fleabay inside a couple of minutes Googling. It's DAB but also has FM. There must be others. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pure-One-Mi-Series-II-DAB-FM-Digital-Radio-Black-VL-61801-/111460536488?_trksid=p2054897.l4275  PURE is an established brand and twenty three quid shouldn't be too big a hole in your pension, m'duck.
Suit yourself, as I'm wont to say.
