Internet Radio standalone without a PC

Hey!
So I am fed up of the current radio offerings and think its time to go internet radio. I would like some help on finding a good internet radio for my room.
Basically I need to be able to connect wirelessly and hook it up to my HIFI using L/R Red White cables. I dont want to connect a Tv or anything to it. Just want Radio and IF and only IF possible, find some way of hooking up my music collection which is on my USB drive to the thingi as well. Its all MP3. Now my router does'nt have a USB slot so I can't network that drive without connecting it to a PC and keeping the PC ON! which I dont want to do!

Any help on this will be fantastic!
So a internet radio. I have looked up a couple on amazon. My Budget again is around the £60-£70 mark.
I was soo tempted to but the WD LIVE as it did radio, but I will need to have a screen etc with it as well.. too much hassle for Radio!!

And also if the radio doesnt have a USB port, some way of networking my USB drive to the radio. Not sure if a cheap dock or soemthing is available!!

Cheers.. and many thanks for helping!

Edit. Just saw your budget. This is way over it, but a great product. You get what you pay for

The joggler looks like the part!! can stick my USB HDD to it as well!! But not sure if its limited to what O2 want you to have. For example is there is open source alternatie to the joggler??? is there an OEM or chinese/Taiwanese one.

How much does the joggler cost btw??
