Software API:

  * play_song(song)
      - Plays song(s) through USB audio connected speakers. Media format must be in mp3. Multiple songs must be in a list. 
  * mpg123 -() filename.mp3
      - command line audio player that can take in individual song files in mp3 format or multiple audio files at once in a list
  * opc.client ensures that server is running so that LED string can be displayed
  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Background Information: 
 
    * Uses USB audio adapter and push button controls. Plays stored mp3 files that are downloaded onto PocketBeagle.
    
    * Key functions used:
        - glob - returns an array of files by identifying a pattern that can be used to match multiple files 
          (i.e. * or ?, etc) in the specified path
        - subprocess - creates a new process and allows for running of terminal commands
        - mpg123 - command line audio player that is compatible with mp3 files. 
          Has several variable arguments which can be appended with the command for different effects and control
          https://linux.die.net/man/1/mpg123 provides all of the possible extensions that can be used with mpg123
    
    * Base code for LED functions came from the following repositories:
        https://markayoder.github.io/PRUCookbook/01case/case.html#_neopixels_5050_rgb_leds_with_integrated_drivers_ledscape
