Step 1: Problems With the Clock
The visual design is not bad, but the quality was terrible. (something usual for products "Made in China")
The clock was not going, some segments of the LED display were not working.
I opened it to see what is the reason, breaking up the warranty.
1) the PCB of the LED display was curved and the contacts to the between corresponding pads on the PCB and the LED display were bad
2) For the clock the LM8560 chip was used, which doesn't use a quartz generator, but is synchronized with the frequency of the AC power net (can be chosen 50 or 60 Hz) - that means bad time accuracy.
3) The PCB of the clock is done with extremely bad quality - it is impossibly practically to solder something on it without destroying the soldering pad or the corresponding track - they simply fall down from the PCB.
4) The flat cables used there were something exceptional - it was possible to split and strip them only by fingers.
5) In the clock was used a Chinese analog of the TA2003 AM/FM radio chip, but only the FM option was used, because it doesn't need ferrite antenna.
My attempt to repair the clock failed - it was not working. The only functioning thing was the FM radio. I decided to use the clock only as radio, but to make it more interesting and attractive. So, I decided to mount inside the clock a small LED light organ on the place of the digital clock display.
Step 2: Redesign Idea
I found in Internet the following schematics for LED light organ ( http://www.b-kainka.de/bastel85.htm ). It has microphone preamplifier which in my case was not needed - the radio has built in audio speaker amplifier.
I used only the marked part of the schematics.
Step 3: The Light Organ Design

The dimensions of the PCB are : 25 mm x 25 mm ( 1inch x 1 inch). They can be reached by proper scaling during printing of the PDF.
Step 4: Needed Parts
3 transistors NPN 2N3904 (can be used each small signal NPN with BETA>80)
3 small signal diodes ( I used Schottky diodes from the type 1N5711, but can be used a normal Si diode)
3 Resistors 200 Ohm ( for 5V supply) - in series with the LEDs
3 Resistors 10 KOhm
1 x 2.2uF electrolyte capacitor
1x100nF ceramic capacitor
1x22nF ceramic capacitor
1x10nF ceramic capacitor
1x4.7nF ceramic capacitor
3 Bright LEDs - red, green, blue (can be put more in series, but must be taken in mind the used supply voltage)
3 suitable LED reflectors (#250807 at Distrelec)
Step 5: Assembled Light Organ
Step 6: The Project Is Ready
Of course it can be mounted in each type of radio, where a supply voltages from 4.5 to 20 V are available. If you want to use it for iPod, MP3 player&etc - then, you have to include also the preamplifier part of the schematics, because the signal level for the phones is not enough to trigger the device. You can place the device also in separate box, to use a plenty of serial/parallel connected LED's - this depends only on your skills and imagination.
