Users comments
The radio sits under the bed and can be controlled with a timer. The timer turns the radio on each morning at 6:00 a.m. and the user can listen to a program without disturbing his wife.

How to make
Mount the headphone earpiece on a piece of Plexiglas and attach the piece of Plexiglas with Velcro straps to the bed’s controls.
