bulletRaspberry PI Vintage Internet Radio

  If you have an old vintage radio which you wish to breath new life into it by converting it to an Internet radio whilst maintaining  the original look and feel of the radio then this is the project for you.

This project requires version 5.3 or later of the Internet Radio software. The following illustration shows a vintage Philips BX490A radio manufactured in the Netherlands in 1949, which has been converted to run as an Internet radio. However almost any suitable vintage radio can be converted. It also optionally uses espeak to speak radio station information which makes it particularly suitable for  blind or visually impaired people.
