There is a dealer/seller on E-bay that modifies our radio's for aux input. He also does Bluetooth also. Not sure what his name but he can be found. FYI a later model GM radio with cd player is another option too.

I got a tape deck, I have no issue with those headphone/cassette adapters. You will need a working tape deck though, that can be the problem lol. My junkyard source is late 80s-mid 90s FWD GM. Cutlass Sierra, Chevy Celebrity, etc. I got my kinda rare badass (for the time, for a factory GM radio) 5 band EQ radio for 23 bucks out of a Celebrity. Had to take half the damn dash apart, but even in poor shape they're selling for double or triple what I paid for it on the internet. And, hey for 23 bucks it works. I need speakers, the radio needs taken apart and the heads cleaned, new belt, but it's 30 years old.

Yeah, you picked basically the WORST car to pull a radio from (2nd only to LHs). the problem with cassette adapters is the frequency response (or lackthereof) with digital media. Compressed music is bad enough as it is.

I wanted to try and leave the old school radio, but will look into that also

This will actually work?? For this radio?
Yes, as long as it can receive FM. I have one that I move from vehicle to vehicle, so I can leave my radios stock. They work quite well, and they even sell this type of device at Walmart now.
