I had the coolest (and appropriate for retrobike), yellow sony sports boom box in the wrkshop. Great for the 'shop, as the waterproof buttons and stuff were swarf proof. Great. But after 2 belts wore out on the tape player it died. Keeping with the '80's flava, I now use a Philips roller, which is designerly cool, but poor on quality. Also, its not so dust resistant. And it squeaks when cold. . and critically, the cable goes in the back, preventing me from getting it flush to the wall, using critical bench space. .
Digital and CD I don't think will work so well in case condensation appears on the laser. I dunno. What do you guys use :?:

Old set of logitek pc speakers and sub, a sony ericsson adapter, and finally my K800i phone with 2gb of Mp3's works perfect and cuts the music whenever a call or text comes in. Only takes up a small corner of workspace also.
