PowerPC-only? REALLY?

This will not run on current versions of the Mac OS from now on. Lion does not include Rosetta.

PowerPC is dead for personal computing, guys. Time to move on; it's been six years or so.

Thanks for the source. I can compile this, but most people do not know how to compile applications.

I take it back; you CAN'T compile the source, because the Xcode project is either corrupt or in so ancient a format that Xcode 4 can't read it. In fact, the first attempt crashed, and subsequent attempts simply say it's an incompatible project version.

Another reason - we have an internet radio station, and it allows us to archive everything for later re-runs, for those not able to catch a show. Also I have a friend with tourettes that swears by it :-)

Great thing, even though the station switching is a bit difficult. Way not make the station list a sidepanel (like folder in Mail.app etc.)?

Anyway, we need a new release, the main file version 1.08 is still named 1.07, thus letting MacUpdate Desktop believe an old version is install.

Well I got confused at first with the interface.... 'now' actually means 'record now'...... hmm. It was also not clear from the help file that one can't listen to music through RadioRecorder at all. However the only real problem I found is that one can't freely select the folder where the recordings are stored, so whatever partition the user's music folder happens to be on will also end up storing all RadioRecorder's MP3 files.
Niggles aside, the recordings themselves are excellent - usually, due to my pre-historic internet connection, any player I have used so far stalls after a while. Not so RadioRecorder. I'm impressed!
And: Thanks for freeware :)))

This is intuitive and easy to use except for one thing---song ends tend to be lopped off 5-8 seconds early. There's no preference to set, as in Streamripper, for adjusting the start/stop of songs, so the only workaround is to drag the tracks out of iTunes into Quicktime Pro, where they can be edited as needed. This is pretty time consuming. Any chance that the developer can tweak his code a little more and make time adjustments possible?

The chopped starts/stops all depend on which stream you're recording. RadioWazee, for instance, chops 5+ seconds off and puts them on the next track, but SKY times everything perfectly. So, it's not this application that's responsible for the problems... but it would still be nice to have a preference for sliding the start/stop time as needed, depending on the stream being recorded.

Nice, but until this supports bookmarkable AACs, I'll carry on using Wiretap and converting with iTunes.

...So, rather than use RadioRecorder, you'll use Wiretap, which also doesn't create AACs? You can convert the files RadioRecorder creates with iTunes, too. :D
Plus, most stream rippers also write out the ID3 tag info, if available, which I don't think Wiretap does (haven't used it, so I can't comment, but I do know it records all the audio output at once...)

Why would you want to recompress the music? AAC is not the native format of the stream. It's GOOD that this thing doesn't save AACs.

One word: Wow!

The interface is a little busy, but this app works very well and can even be scheduled!. Within minutes I had a handful of new songs in my iTunes library without an ounce of effort. Very nice. And it's free to boot.

Easy porgram to use. I absolutely love it when I can record perfect sounding stations of very hard to find music. (I.E. Drone Zone, Grove Salad, stuff you really cant buy in a store) I lov the idea of coming back to my computer to find 30 new songs. Great program. A+++

It appears that this program NO LONGER WORKS with the latest version of iTunes 9.x.
RadioRecorder will rip the stream but it fails to add the song to iTunes. And when it fails at adding the song to iTunes, the song disappears from the Music folder.

It looks like it is no longer being developed. Pity.

You can't even run it anymore, because it's PowerPC-only, and Mac OS no longer includes an emulator.

The Xcode project is also corrupt or too ancient to load.
