Two kinds: one which is a physical AM/FM radio, the other would be software that will schedule streaming online radio.
Here's how I envision the interface:
At the lowest level of complexity, for the AM/FM radio, you would enter the time and frequency. For example, 5 pm (or 1700) - 91.5 FM. For
the program, select a time then the url of an audio stream.
At the next level of complexity, you could select the day of the week; so the program schedule for the weekends might be different from weekdays for example.
At the final level of complexity, you could select a specific date, so that someone could have the radio automatically tune into a one-time program, like an interview for example. Kind of like the same functionality that most VCRs have.
||For online stuff just use cron.
||cron or task scheduler in Windows, but neither has an interface which is intuitive to the average user.
||So tell us what that interface should be like.
