    SOLUTION AND FEEDBACK:

    Dave, I bought the DockLinQ shown as the bottom of your post #5.

    It arrived from Amazon (UK) two days later. It's brilliant. This small, almost tiny, "dongle" fits nicely in the Bose Sounddock where you can charge it's battery. Then open any recent iPhone > Settings > Bluetooth > and there is DockLinQ. Click on that.

    And play music/videos to your heart's content.

    You can link it up to multiple iPhones or similar.

    It also comes with a 3.5mm Line-in-Jack lead which means that you can connect an older iPhone or similar device directly to the dongle. Let's you play music from devices that don't support Bluetooth (BT).

    I am deeply indebted to you.

    I've posted this in case others find themselves in a situation where they have music stored on a device that doesn't support BT eg an iPod, but where there is a 3.5mm Line-in-Jack output. They can connect the iPod (or similar) directly to the dongle OR, as I will do, use your iPhone (recent or old) to play your music.

    As a complete BTW, the dongle thing, which is stored in the UK, and shipped there from, costs exactly the same in ús as the cost in USD$.

    Hi Ian - awesome! Glad that the BT option worked well for you and at a modest cost - I have the same music on my 'old' iPod Touch and also my new iPad Pro (has BT but no earphone jack - if cable was desired would need to get a USB-C adapter) - BUT, if my iPod died that BT adapter would easily fit my Sangean radio (see pic), however, that brand is not listed in the long list of 'compatible' radios/sound systems in the Amazon ad - left a community message and hopefully the seller of the product will respond - if compatible, I could easily used my iPad w/ BT. Dave

    P.S. the newest Sangean model similar my old one, has BT only (plus an Aux In port) - only $80 USD on Amazon.
