    My husband's uncle is 89 years young and has been losing his sight due to macular degeneration. He is legally blind but can see a little. He is limited in his tv viewing, obviously, but expressed an interest in listening to old time radio shows. I can burn CDs for him but can only fit a few on one. So I thought maybe I'd get him an inexpensive MP3 player. Can anyone make a recommendation? I have heard the Ipod Shuffle has only the controls on the front. Will it be simple enough for him to use?

    Thanks for any thoughts you may have about this.
