I don't want to seem pedantic, but the radio you speak of is a Blaupunkt unit.
We probably agree that it is junk, but we should also agree not to malign the
wrong manufacturer for the scrap that another makes.  Bose doesn't make
radios, they only provide a couple of the proprietary ICs within, as well as
the loudspeakers, enclosures, etc.  It would be good to ascribe blame and
credit fairly, where due.

All radio reliability problems, and there are many, with the Delta and Gamma
units are Blaupunkt problems. The radios seem to have a very poor track record
(poor reception, failed volume control, failed displays, random loss of
signal, random station changes, ...).  It's not surprising that Blaupunkt has
lost the vast majority of their OEM business in the US.

Any trouble a person might have with the loudspeakers is attributable to Bose.
So is any beef with the sound quality.
