This retro radio project brings back old to meet the new. A trendy old radio that plays any music you want, not just the boring stuff that you can get through the radio waves!
Using the credit card sized computer, Raspberry Pi–the sky is the limit. To get the best streaming music experience for this project once you have the Raspberry Pi, use the free Linux distribution, Pi MusicBox. Pi MusicBox offers the cream of the crop:
- Spotify, Google Music and Sound Cloud
- Remote control it with a nice browser-interface, or with an MPD-client
- Web Radio
- AirTunes/AirPlay streaming
- Last.FM scrobbling
- Play music files from the SD, USB, Network
- and more!
Select any old Radio of choice. These can be found everywhere; eBay, garage sales or your grandma’s basement. Don’t worry, they don’t have to be in working condition because all of what is inside them will be thrown out!
Follow the creator’s instructions for disassembly, installation and reassembly:
Now you can have the best house cleaning day of your life with your own retro radio!
