Raspberry Pi Internet Radio #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Here’s a great Internet Radio project via http://usualpanic.com:

How cool would it be take a vintage 1940′s or 1950′s wooden radio and rebuild it as a modern Internet Radio? That’s the premise I had in mind when I started out on my first Raspberry Pi project.

I used the Adafruit Occidentalis Linux distribution and Adafruit python class for the 32×2 LCD display.

I found a great YouTube tutorial by MeisterVision that covered the basics of the MPC/MPD Linux Music Player really well.

Source code and more here and check out our own Raspberry Pi WiFi Radio tutorial!
