UPDATE: This project requires the older Raspbian “Wheezy” (May 2015 or earlier) operating system. It will not work with the current “Jessie” OS.

The software package used in this project (“pianobar”) is extremely sensitive to different OS releases. Please use the 2015-05-05 version of Raspbian. We have a different radio project (with touchscreen!) that may be less delicate in this regard.

Raspberry Pi, the little wonder-puter that’s taken the world by storm, is so affordable that we can create nifty single-purpose “appliances” around them without shame. Here’s our take on one of the more popular such applications: internet streaming media, the Pandora music service specifically.

With the addition of a small LCD, a few buttons and a USB wireless network adapter, the Raspberry Pi becomes an affordable self-contained music streamer that can be moved to any room of the house…wherever you need your tunes at the moment. Just connect power and speakers or headphones.
