Some of you may have heard (of) The Thistle & Shamrock Celtic music radio show, which some public radio stations air for an hour each week.

The show used to air here in LA, but went the way of the dodo some time ago (not sure when). They played it on Saturday night during prime gaming time, so I never could listen to it since we moved out here.

But now I can. Of course it's broadcast live on the web (via streaming media) from various channels and I could listen to that, but why force my schedule to theirs? No need to...

Using Musicmatch Jukebox I can record the program directly to my computer's hard disk in MP3 format, then burn it to CD and listen to it on a portable player, or at work, or whatever. This software could be used live, but has a scheduler built in so if I leave the computer on and radio channel streaming, then the recorder will start at the time I specify and grab just the hour of interest.

It would be possible to record any streamed event -- as far as I can tell -- including ball games, speeches, etc.

Pretty cool, eh?
