This one may be pushing the idea too far, but if it can be made to work
over a phone line, what about using one of those low-power FM
transmitter kits like this: 
to broadcast CoCo cassette WAV files for 8-bit WiFi?  Yes, it's silly,
but how cool would it be to have a small program constantly re-broadcast
on a tape loop, and hook an FM receiver up to the CoCo's cassette port. 
Turn it on and pick up a program off the airwaves.  I have no idea if
the frequency response and fidelity of these cheap transmitter kits
would make it workable in practice, but the idea is tantylizing.
