Festival Radio

Status: figuring out which parts to buy
Release Date: hopefully June 2019
Initiator: Lukas
Team: who else would like to help?

I want to turn an old radio into a digital music player for festivals and garden parties.

Originally I wanted to keep the old radio functions in, but will probably scrap that plan to gain more space for batteries and ease of assembly.

If you're good with audio, electronics or Raspberry Pi, I'd apreciate any help!

Important Steps

  • remove unneeded hardware
  • add batteries & charging electronics
  • get basic functionality (e.g. 3.5 mm jack)
  • convert the cassette tray into an SD card reader
  • (optional) display ID3 information about current song somewhere (old tuner scale?)
