Raspberry Pi set up as a Wifi internet radio. SSH into to set up your playlist. Streams play on MPC and MPD so you have command line access. Im using the Adafruit Raspberry Cobbler to have access to buttons from the python program that just manages the playlist.
Hit up or down on the buttons and the player moves on to the next item in the playlist. You fill the Rpi up with streams that you like and save them and thats it, personalized internet radio player for $44.
The full write-up including links to all the important information (where to buy the Wifi, setup, Adafruit instructions, etc) are here on my blog.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

I have something similar running on my Pi, using the MPoD iPhone app as the remote control. Works pretty good but the analog sound out is noisy, loud pops on streaming radio changes.
Pianobar, the great CLI for Pandora is available by just doing:
sudo apt-get install pianobar (for many distro’s).
