How to Record Live Internet Radio

The procedure is surprisingly easy. Simply download Winamp, a great free music player, and install the plug-in Streamripper. Then, using a site such as Shoutcast, you can find radio stations to record. If a station's listings on that site shows the song currently being played, Streamripper will break the MP3 output into a different file for every song when recording that station. Phenomenal.

There are other ways to do this, of course, but I have trouble imagining a simpler way. I ran this program last night on William & Mary's radio site, and had 128 new songs to listen to at work today. I also listened to Play Classical UK, picking up about 20 pieces. There are dozens more I could have chosen from.
