When I replaced the old tube style tuner in my shop I ended up buying a 
big ugly boom box combo unit that would play my ipod (and CDs if I was 
so inclined). I have a big plastic shopping bag that I pull all the way 
down over it when not in use and lift it up so it just sits on the top 
when in use so as to keep the fall out to a minimum. It is not really 
pretty, but then again neither am I nor is most of my shop space.
