How to Record Archived Shows

There are so many great radio shows archived on the Internet. But sadly they don't stay there forever. Now you can easily record archived radio shows to your hard drive and listen to them whenever you want on your PC, iPod or portable player. It's really easy to do!

Replay A/V from Applian Technologies is far and away the best solution for capturing archived radio shows. It's a powerful recording program with a built-in URL tool to help find the stream for these archives so you can record them with perfect sound quality. And since Replay AV uses this Stream Capture technology, you not only can record with perfect sound quality but you can record 10 or more archives simultaneously. Even better, recorded archives can be converted to other formats to enjoy on your portable player or even cell phone!
