Touchscreen Internet radio

Came across on Twitter a while back an Internet radio with touchscreen.

Having all the bits it didn't take long to set up and a great guide has now appeared on Adafruit https://learn.adafruit.com/raspberry-pi-radio-player-with-touchscreen/overview

I have since edited rc.local and added

cd /home/pi/Radio/
Sudo Python radioplayer.py 


With this in there the radio loads up automatically and if you hold the button down second from left for three seconds this will shut it down.


I also have a nice sonic pi speaker and a usb wifi dongle plugged in and using a 240v - 5v 2a plug similar to th iPhone charger socket plus usb lead to run this.
