This Radio Exclusively Plays Grand Theft Auto Stations

With this project you won’t need to steal a car to listen to San Andres’ greatest hits. Via Hackster.io:

Redditor Ryancey didn’t want that to be limited to the game play, so he built a dedicated Grand Theft Auto San Andreas radio.

Ryancey started with what appears to be a beautiful TO100 portable radio built by French company Optalix in the mid-’70s. The TO100 is a work of art in it’s own right, and any retro tech enthusiast would be happy to get their hands on one. But, Ryancey wasn’t just looking for a pretty radio, he wanted something that could play his favorite Grand Theft Auto radio stations. To make that possible, he turned to everyone’s favorite single-board computer: the Raspberry Pi.

Rockstar, the publisher of the Grand Theft Auto video game series, has graciously made the radio soundtracks available to download as MP3s. So, playing them on a Raspberry Pi is as easy as playing any other music. But, Ryancey wanted to simulate the experience of tuning into a real radio station. So, he used two potentiometers — one for volume, and one for tuning — to recreate that experience with some Python code running on the Raspberry Pi. That makes it feel like you’re actually living in San Andreas when you turn on the radio.
