CSBLA400KECE-B0 resonator for my radio design

Hello
I want to design a mini radio, as it is one of my homework..
But as I don't quite clearly know about the resonators, I want to ask for your help.
I have checked online and found some ceramic resonators, and chose this one:  CSBLA400KECE-B0 .
(Click the datasheet for your reference: http://www.kynix.com/uploadfiles/pdf0125/CSBLA400KECE-B0.pdf)
Now can anyone ansewer me the following questions:

1.What are the advantages and disadvantages of this type if I use it in my radio?
2.Some one will use quartz crystal resonators when designing communication equipment, is it OK for me to use ceramic resonator rather than the crystal one?
3.Do you have any other choice of the resonator?

Any suggestion will be appreciated!Thank you very much !

"a resonator is essentially a low-budget crystal" from:

Drifting off frequency might not be good for a radio? (Or it might be good? see last link.)
"Prior to crystals, radio stations controlled their frequency with tuned circuits, which could easily drift off ... "

- Brian

"This wide swing is useful for some radio transmitter and receiver circuits. However in other cases the accuracy and repeatability of a quartz crystal oscillator may be preferred."

There are some interesting coil winding websites.
