This Arduino based radio player will provide a base station for tunes if you’re the type who enjoys passing idle time by keeping up with podcasts or listening to web stations but don’t always want to occupy your laptop or tablet.

This Web Radio Player provides inexpensive internet radio player with high quality stereo sound. It can be used to listen on internet radio stations without personal computer or tablet or smartphone. The project has two switches to control the next or previous radio station. It has 14 pre-defined radio stations that can be replaced with the radio stations of your choice by re-programming the modified sketch to the Arduino pro mini. The project’s hardware consist of Arduino pro mini as main processor, ENC28J60 Ethernet module to connects the circuit to the internet, VS1053B and Nokia 5110 LCD module to displays the information about the webradio station.

If you’re going to build your own radio, it’s always cool to disguise your high-tech creation as something more rustic as this is a no-sweat project for both the hardware savvy and those more oriented with code writing.
