Save Streaming Music to Your PC

Build up a digital music collection by saving files in MP3 format when you listen to Internet radio stations.

When I’m at my PC, I spend a fair amount of time listing to streaming Internet radio stations, such as that which you can find at http://www.shoutcast.com, http://www.live365.com, or the many radio stations available directly from Windows Media Player and Musicmatch Jukebox.

Tip

To listen to radio stations with Windows Media Player, first launch it by choosing Start All Programs Accessories Entertainment Windows Media Player, and then click the Radio Tuner button.

Often, I’ll want to listen to a particular song again after hearing it—for example, a pavan by the English Renaissance composer John Dowling that I don’t have on my CD collection. But because radio stations stream music to your PC, that music apparently can’t be called back up and listened to again. Same deal with sample clips on Amazon.com and other sellers of digital music—once you’ve listened to the clip, you can’t save it like other files.
