Raspberry Pi Internet Radio Tutorial (MPD + 20×4 LCD) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Here’s a great RasPi internet radio tutorial that we learned about from the Adafruit Forums!
This is a full step-by-step tutorial to set up a raspberry pi powered internet radio device, with push buttons as inputs to change channels and a 20×4 RGB LCD display to output the current station. This project relies heavily on a basic understanding of the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO. If this is your first project using the GPIO header, I recommend that you check out Gert’s tutorial for using the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO with python.
You will need the following two python scripts to complete this tutorial:

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
