Vintage style radios are so cool looking. The problem is that the early ones are only battery powered and/or only tune in AM stations.
So how can we keep the vintage style but add new life into an old radio?
I decided to make it play music of its era. But, I wanted it to tune in a radio station (mp3) using the dial and keep the original parts.
A Raspberry Pi is playing two MP3s at the same time to create the "tuning" effect. The tone knob now selects between 1930, 1940s, 1930s Christmas, and War of the Worlds radio broadcast by Orson Welles.
