Boombox that plays MP3

by ranro / December 14, 2008 2:20 PM PST

I was wondering if someone had a suggestion for a boombox that plays MP3 that also let you rewind ad fast forward through the MP3 file to get to a certain point in the file. I am looking for this for my brother. He likes to listen to Podcasts and Audio Books that I burn to CD for him and what happen is he gets interrupted by someone or has to stop listening for some other reason. When he starts to listen again on the Boombox he has currently, he has to start again at the beginning of the podcast because it just lets him start at the beginning of each track. It would be nice if he could fast forward and get back to the point where he last listened.

Does anyone know of a boombox that does this?
