How To Convert Real Audio Streams to Mp3

Ever wished there was a straightforward way of recording the audio streams of net radio? Something as easy as the home taping of FM stations that you used to do on your stereo?... Well there is!
Basically you just need to download Streambox VCR (which lets you download audio streams), dBpowerAMP Music Converter (to convert the streams into mp3s), a few codecs, and a "file selector"... and you're ready to rip! For a more detailed run down of the process, go to this entry in Swen's blog.

And while you're there, you might want to check out the rest of Swen's site, which is primarily devoted to posting links to mp3s by artists featured in that avant-music journal The Wire. His most recent crop features Iron & Wire, Bark Psychosis, Mum, Pixies reunion concert bootlegs, groups from Weilheim, Germany (eg The Notwist, Village of Savoonga), and China's first all grrl punk band, Hang on The Box.
