    Hi!

    I want to record a radio program that runs for three hours nightly, from midnight to 3:00A.M. on the internet. The program is the classics from the "Golden Age of Radio" that I hope to copy for a senior in the hospital.

    The plan is to record it as a low resolution MP3 (32 or 64 bit), burn it to a cd that would be played on a discman.

    I know I have to purchase a recording program such as Total Recorder or Super MP3 Recorder.

    I have tried the trial version of TR that allows only 40 seconds. It is hard to determine how large the file size of the would be. The instructions seem to be slanted more to song recording length, not three hours.

    Before I buy I would like any some advice. Has anyone done this? Are there any recomendations?

    Thanks

    I listen to Shoutcast MP3 streaming radio stations (.PLS or .m3u). The resultant 128 - 320k mp3's can be automatically saved by my MP3 player of choice QCD . WinAmp also works with some add-ons.

    For a general purpose recorder Total Recorder will record any sounds you hear. It can save as wav, or mp3. It's nice with streams as it can also eliminate most pauses/glitches and does not record when there is no sound. At $12 it's also a good deal.

    For any Trance fans out there, some great music can be found HERE .

    yea, Total Recorder really is your best bet. It's a great program, it's easy to use, cheap, and you can specific what quality you want it to be saved in (if you make it an mp3, anywhere from 64 kbps to 320 kbps). It's definitely worth it.

    One thing to remember with Total Recorder is that some programs don't like the audio settings 'through total recorder', mixer etc. I always set mine back to my sound card when not using the program.
