I’ve always loved the look of older radios, a long with that i’ve always had a strong love for jazz music. Recently i’ve decided that the pefect thing to add to my desk was something to play jazz, but when i had that idea i felt that i needed to take it one step further. I found an old radio built in the 1930’s and won the auction on it, i’m planning on restoring the condition of the case and using a raspberry pi along with some other components to play jazz music from an archive i found on archive.org (found here: https://archive.org/details/davidwnivenjazz?&sort=-publicdate&page=1) which contains a massive library of music (nearly 640gb).
