    I am resident in the UK, though I also spend some time in the USA each year. When in the UK I used to record a number of radio programmes onto cassette or mini-disk (remember them?) from my FM radio, using a timer on the hi-fi system - the programmes were either broadcast when I was out or asleep, which is why the timer is important. Sadly, the hi-fi has died and so neither the cassette not the mini-disk are options for the future. I bought a Roberts DAB radio with a memory card slot to make recordings but this has proved very unreliable (I've had three so far, all of which have failed) and they no longer make a model with a memory card slot. I am not aware of any other radio in the UK which has this facility.

    It seems to make sense to record these radio programmes from the internet. Some are available as podcasts from the BBC, but a few aren't. What recommendations do you have for software which will enable me to make these recordings?
