Default OUt of the loop on modern electronics

I need something to listen to when I clean the kitchen at night. This is the time when I am feeling run down and vulnerable and prone to miss my mother the most.

I have a radio in the kitchen, but I cannot get the radio station that I want to hear the most.

So, I was thinking of getting an mp3 player? Or an iPod? I think I can download some of the shows that I want to hear. Is there anything that is able to access online radio stations?

What do you suggest? I am not really familiar with anything besides the radio and a CD player.

I would suggest an iPod, either the Classic or the Nano.


 


With that you can download music, tv shows, etc. If you browse iTunes, you can see all you can download.
 


You can also get this accessory for your ipod so you can listen to regular FM radio stations too.
 


Hope that helps!

also, if you have a laptop, you can just plug that in and then you can 'stream' radio stations and use it just like a regular radio... only with better reception.

Karen, I tried doing that but the volume on this laptop is not that great for listening with dishes and water running.

I'd get an Ipod. But, I warn you that the songs are about $1 each to download from the I-tunes store. If you want a bunch, it gets pricey pretty quickly.
