I've got one of the iAudio 1GB some time back (mine was actually white
not black,
with a nice clear backlit blue screen), it's still a bit expensive, $80 here:
It does playback OGG (with slightly higher battery drain) but can only record
audio as mp3 files. It has a tuner, and can record from the tuner.
The user interface is fairly good, at least I'm a big fan of it.
It's mostly controlled by just the one "stick", with three buttons
along the side
of the unit for power-on, record and mode if I remember correctly.
