Long story short; I have a clock radio and it can just about play something from the radio and wake me up in the morning. But if the power goes out it never remembers the time or what any of the radio stations were, and it completely lacks the ability to auto-seek for stations (and I can never remember what the stations numbers are either which is why only one is ever reprogrammed in). As a result, I’ve had it in the back of my mind to build a replacement using my Pi Zero and now that I have a couple extra bits of hardware I thought I’d make a stab at starting the build.
So this is part one of the build process. Or, as I like to title it; Part “I’ve just got some neat hardware so let’s muck about and see if I can get it to do anything”.
