How can I save streamed audio like BBC's Nick Drake special?

First, get a computer. OK, now: which kind did you get?

Get Audacity (free software). Very decent sound editor. If I set my computer to record Wave (drop down box on the toolbar) and hit record, anything coming through the sound card is recorded in real time. Can save as a wav easily, to save as mp3 you have to download LAME (explained on website.) I've used it with RealPlayer. YMMV, I don't know if sound cards differ.

ReplayRadio is great because as well as recording streaming content it works as a PVR to record online radio stations on a timer.

Try TotalRecorder.

It's great for recording from all sorts of things like Real, Macromedia stuff and those stupid copy protected CD's. It also has a built in scheduler

Thanks ALongDecember. I will record it Audaciously.

It's worth it to get the software that automatically turns itself off when long periods of silence are encountered.

I may not have asked the question, but the advice helped me anyway. So thanks.

Download Stream Down. Works like a charm.

StationRipper worked well for me recently when WOXY went off the air. It's free too boot.
