I have an Android Phone with a cracked screen. It still works even though the glass is full of cracks, so I'm trying to figure out a use for it.
Is it possible to somehow use it as a Squeezebox player, controlling it remotely from another device?

Yes, the android app "Squeeze player" will do it, see http://www.squeezeplayer.com/ and

I have an android alarm clock I use as a squeezplayer

I use my android phone as the remote

I works great. Although the Squeezer remote only supports streaming from the squeeze server. There are other (paid) remote apps that will also play music services. It works good for me, since I play Spotify, TuneIn radio, and Podcatser locally on the alarm clock for my other music needs.

Its called an Archos 35 home connect. It's has some limitations, but as far as I can see its the only android alarm clock available. I bought it from Amazon, but they do not stock it anymore, it may have been discontinued. I wrote a review on Amazon, its still there if you want to read it.
