Dear Dave, Michael and David

Thank you very much for your replies.

I have indeed selected the accessory power and line out options in the
settings.
I can now play music while plugged in to the radio clock! What did it was
holding the menu button down as David suggested while I was connecting.

From what I can see in the link that David pointed me to, the Sony radio
clock is indeed supported but the remote has been checked on an iPod 4G.
There doesn't seem to be anything about the iPod classic. It seems to work
now, but cannot be controlled by the remote.
It got stuck one track, which made the iPod switch off, but I rebooted it
and it seems to be fine.

M.
