First off, Mods if this is a no no, please shut this thread down.

Ok, my question, is there a way to record off of internet radio? I have been listening to some stations that play a lot of b sides, extended mixes and rare tracks that are not readily available anywhere. I would love to have some of these tracks in my collection. So, is there any way that I can record from the radio much like when I was a kid sitting there with a casette tape ready to record when a good song played on the radio.

Honestly I don't remember. I tried it about 6 months ago, more or less just to see if it could indeed record streaming music. It worked well but during a hard drive cleanup I decided I probably wasn't going to use it after all.

The only thing I can think of that might work, if you have a Sound Blaster card, is to put in a phono jack(the same one that might connect to your stereos Headphone input), into the Audio out on the sound card and record through a VCR using an RCA cable. Then just re-encode the audio from the VCR.

That's how I've been recording my favorite morning radio s how through the stereo for the past few years now, so I don't have to wake up at 6AM to hear it :).

Richard,

I use Goldwave http://www.goldwave.com to do exactly what you are looking to do. Aside from recording, it is an awesome audio editor. It has a limited use trial download but it is well worth the cost to own.

Regards,
