I lifted this from a van forum which would suit a lot of BOGers for a blast from the past.
If anybody is interested I can show you how to record the streaming audio to a mp3 file for playing later.

Hello all,

Just wanted to let you know of a community radio station, entirely run by volunteers in Perth, Western Australia, which broadcasts 24-hours / 7-days a week for Seniors, the "Golden Years of Radio", i.e.: predominantly music from the 1920s through to the 1960s - defined as "over 40 years ago".
As this caravanners group includes a very large component of seniors, I would like you to know the station also broadcasts on the web, live streaming the same program put to air in Perth, so you can hear great music from your younger days, wherever you are in your caravan, or even back home, as long as you have the Internet connected. Go to either:
- www.capitalcommunityradio.com
- www.capital905.org.au
and enjoy the best from 6SEN Capital Community Radio (Capital 90.5FM), and of course when travelling through, or staying in, Perth, tune to 90.5 on the FM band.

Cheers,
Russell Coghlan

This link will bring up a small dialog box to choose from a list which media player to launch. I have found the free Windows Media Player to be the most user friendly. If it is not there you can add it by finding the .exe file in the Program Files folder.
This will start the radio station audio. Now start the FreeSoundRecorder. If all things are working you will hear it and see it on the vertical signal level meters top left of the recorder. With the Settings button you can choose the folder where the .mp3 file will be created. Also I use the 'auto file create' option.
Push the round red button and you are in business.

The best time to record is overnight as the music is continuous with no interruptions.

Once set up and it will run on its own no problems. Remember to check your data usage to see you don't gobble it all up with music. Experiment for a while.

Hope this helps.
