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!

How to record iTunes radio stations onto your iPod:

  1. Open iTunes, and click the Radio tab. The Radio Stations list appears as shown:

  4. To have songs added automatically to iTunes, choose Audio - MP3 for the After Recording, Convert to option. Then click the Output tab, and tick Add to iTunes.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
