Radio Tune tracker gadget?

I remember a long time ago a mention of a new gadget that helps you track radio. Say you were in your car and a really good tune comes up, which you really want to find out more, you use use this gadget by clicking it and it stores the time and date of the radio broadcast and you simply connect it to the internet and it will find you the name and track title of what you heard.

Has anyone heard of this device?

It's not something that rings a bell but the BBC website's individual radio stations' pages list tracks played that day or previous days.

oh ok, tx m8.

I read about one of these gadgets somewhere but can't rememer. lol, Its annoying when you listen to soo many good songs on radio when your driving but never remember what they were called or even sung by whom.

Tx for the BBC tip :)

now this is where a Palm T3 comes in handy. Make small recording of tune and maybe dj saying what its called.

Then when you're stopped you can write it into Palm and off to the local Megastore to buy it.

shazam can do this over your mobile phone. You simply dial the number, let the phone listen for 5 seconds and it comes up with the track/artist/album information and even where you can buy it.

mentioned by Woody147 is excellent, I use it often. You'll receive a text message with full details of the music you heard. It hardly ever fails to come up trumps.

hey thanks guys!

50p for TAG and 9p call charge is that right? if so, thats quite expensive for my needs.

Thanks for the tip.

I mostly listen to radio when i'm driving so using a mobile texting could land me in real trouble. lol.
