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.
UPDATE: This project requires the older Raspbian “Wheezy” (May 2015 or earlier) operating system. It will not work with the current “Jessie” OS.
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.Last updated on 2015-11-19 at 06.25.26 PM Published on 2013-04-12 at 12.02.45 PM
