| | Internet Radios are Awesome
I have a Grace Digital Radio and I love that thing... for about $120 and no monthly subscriptions, you can listen to virtually any radio station in the world, it seems like (I think they practically all stream online at this point).
In addition to listening to radio stations I like from cities I no longer live in, there are a number of OTR stations available for different genres. Many of these devices can also work as media servers, so we can listen to the podcast shows, OTR and audio dramas I've collected as well. It looks a little more modern than your golden-era radio, but creates much the same effect for its listeners.
If you're a radiohead, you really should take a look at these.
