I like it! I think I'll have to consider making space for a radio in my brew rig when I get is designed. Or maybe a pull-out stand for my laptop so I can surf HBT while brewing. I normally do this anyway.

That's cool. But I wonder if the radio can stand up to the heat of a mash, or the inevitable hosing out that mash tun coolers get. They get a little more abuse in brewing, than sitting by the beach, listening to tunes and pulling out a bud every now and then.

It would probably fall out of the cooler after a few 60 min mashes! And yeah, PBW , heat, and sticky wort would take a toll on that sucker!!

Or Slacker.com. I always have my laptop either playing tunes, Netflix Watch Instantly, or whatever show I've just torrented....good times.

SHHHH, don't tell SWMBO that half the time I'm in the garage "brewing", I'm just watching my favorite TV

Too bad it's not short wave. This might come in hand on a post-zombie-apocalyptic brew day.
