Radio VCR

While in Chicago I used to record The Last Word to my PC using Mplayer, and listen to Radio 1 in “realtime” over the Internet. Well, I did this until I got bored of hearing the same news on each channel, except on a Friday when the 6-7pm slot on TodayFM went all sporty, and I’d listen to Radio 1.
Justin found a guy who’s recording radio using a voice-codec that encodes at 16Kbps. That would have been handy in the US!
What I should have recorded of course is:

  • The Full Irish on 2FM in the morning.
  • Marian Finucan on Radio 1 from 9am to 10am.
  • Ray D’Arcy on TodayFM
  • The 1pm news on Radio 1
  • TodayFM from 2pm onwards
  • Joe Duffy’s show on Radio 1 at 2pm would be more interesting as I could fast-forward through it!

Maybe next time I’m over I’ll do that!

  1. hehe. He’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and to be honest, he’s beginning to grate on my nerves too! I used to be a huge Ian Dempsey fan but I’ll probably listen to Radio 1 in the morning before TodayFM, simply for the fix of news and discussion.
