MP3 Alarm Clock? Anyone?

Still can't find the right MP3 Alarm Clock for my night stand. It has to have the profile of a regular alarm clock, and convenient snooze feature, and I want to wake up to one of my MP3 songs. That iHome one is too big. (And my clock doesn't need to dock my iPod.) That Philips one is too small. There's another Timex one, but the MP3 media cannot be selected as the wake-up song. Am I just not using the right search keywords? Not going into the right stores?

What kind of alarm clock do you have now? Mine takes a CD, and I've burned audio discs from MP3s for it before. Currently it sports TMBG's Lincoln (much to  dotgirl's dismay), but. Aaaaanyway, to cement this as the least helpful comment ever, here's an alarm clock that does not at all play MP3s, but is nonetheless very cool: It lets you set separate alarms for each day of the week. I like the "nap" feature--sort of a reverse snooze button. The odd thing, though, is I didn't see any with a quick search of standard places either. I wonder if they are not around yet? Can you use your iPod for such a thing if you have external speakers? Or use a phone/PDA?

Good suggestions! But the CD feature doesn't work for me, because the clock is on my side of the bed, and I wake up to the sound of the CD motor spinning up and seeking before I hear the music. That's why it's got to be native MP3. The iHome clock is a docking iPod clock. It doesn't have the right footprint for my little nightstand. If you ask me, this is a big hole in the marketspace.
