How to Record iTunes Radio Stations onto your iPod
Wouldn't it be cool if you could listen to the radio on your iPod --
from those wonderful iTunes radio stations? Well, you can! Not only
that, you'll be able to see what song is playing, skip to the next song
if you don't like it, or replay a song you like.
Using Replay A/V from
Applian Technologies, you can simply drag and drop station from iTunes
Radio into Replay A/V for recording.Once recording has finished,
you'll have separate MP3 files for each song!

tab, and tick Add to iTunes.
- To begin recording right away, from the Basic tab click Record
Now. You can also schedule a time and duration for recording
from the Schedule tab. This is handy if you want to automatically
get fresh new songs onto your iPod once a day or every week.
- Click OK when you're done.
One of the cool things about recording iTunes (and other Shoutcast-style
stations) is that Replay A/V will automatically create a new MP3 file
whenever a song changes. In addition, it will tag the MP3 files with
the artist and song title, so you can see what song is playing while
you listen. If you set up a playlist in iTunes, you'll be able to
skip over songs you don't like, or replay songs you enjoy. Of course,
this works on your iPod, too! There's never been a better way to listen
to the radio.
