    Loads on Amazon. Sandisk clip seems to get a good rep, that's 22 or so.

    People still buy bespoke MP3 players rather than just use their phones?

    Some of the budget phones have built-in FM radio that uses earplug cable as an antenna. If the phone itself can't play MP3s you can get mini FM transmitters - connect them to the MP3 headphone socket, set a frequency not in use by any station in the area, start the MP3 player going and tune the phone in. Hey presto, music. Simples. *squeak*
