10 Desktop Apps for Recording Internet Radio
By
Recording Internet Radio

Has the internet killed the radio station? Not so fast! Internet radio is a burgeoning medium that allows users to listen to various stations from across the world, streaming live music and talk shows to an international audience. Of course, the app you use to listen to and record music and talk shows can make a big difference.

So, what are we looking for in our ideal internet radio recorder? Some sort of internet radio station browser or management feature (preferably with a few stations already included), a built-in media player (so you don't have to have multiple programs running simultaneously), and, finally, the ability to schedule an automatic recording to ensure you never miss your favorite radio program. Read on for our recommendations!

    I've been using Total Recorder for years to record radio broadcasts, both off the air and over the internet. It has a good scheduling program that can open and close URLs in a browser so that you don't miss a show even if you're not around to start the stream.

    Caution!
    Freecorder may contain malware and a hi-jacker.
    Several comments in the Freecoreder 7 youtubevideo reports of it.

    Gonna try it in a virtual machine to see if the claims are true.
    Just had to let others know, if it is potentially dangerous.
