Just buy a cheap one they all do the same, as for DAB or not depends on your signal in the area, analogue extends to everywhere DAB is more problematic a building might block it, but the quality is better once you find a spot to get a good signal

Dabs ok for a mono radio but TBH a good quality FM will be fine...

Only need it for a week/2 weeks so will most likely just get a random £10 one.

Kinda depends on what radio stations you want to listen to...

FM an AM would cover the stations i listen to

DAB quality is much better than MW

Think you've answered your own question then...

Tesco has the DAB I use for DIY at £24 or a Majority brand one for £20. For outdoors, get a dark coloured one with a fat base and one that takes 4 AA batteries as rechargeables are easy to get and manage. My DAB gets through a set of AAs in about 7 hours.
