    I record a radio program with a program called DAK, so I am getting streaming audio. But, when I play it back to listen to after it has been recorded, I also get any sound made in the area where my computer is. That is, If I have the radio on while I'm recording, that gets recorded as well. What can I do to stop that?

    You are recording an Internet radio program or an FM radio program?

    So you are recording it with a microphone from an FM radio?

    Are you using a computer with a built-in or attached microphone? If so, see if the recording program has any kind of mixer function that may be combining the streaming audio with the mic input. Also see if the volume control in the Windows task bar has any kind of advanced mixer screen that may also have the microphone input enabled.
