How can I record a streaming radio program with Audacity?

  Triprajul 20:18 27 Nov 2011


I posted earlier about this issue and I received two nice replies, especially from eedcam. Basically, I have looked at some Audacity tutorials but I just want to do a certain task described below so the quick and dirty steps to do this would be appreciated.

I have downloaded Audacity-win-1.2.6 BTW, my OS is Vista Ultimate.

A) I go to the Internet radio station and turn on and listen to the stream. Now, how can I record this streaming radio program? If some nice person could tell me the exact steps, it would be greatly appreciated.

B) Next, this program comes on very late at night. Does Audacity have a feature like a timer that I can set so that it comes on at a certain, designated time and goes off at certain time? Any information given is greatly appreciated.

C) Finally, is my version of Audacity, that is Audacity-win-1.2.6, good enough for my purposes or should I download a newer version?

That’s it for now. Thank you for reading my post and I look forward to reading your postings or feel free to PM.
