Rogue Amoeba's Radioshift 1.5 snuck out at the very end of 2009, and has subsequently been followed by a pair of bug-fix updates. Major new features in Radioshift 1.5 include support for thousands of previously unsupported streams (including ones previously available only to Web-based players), better error-handling with faulty streams, easier installation of third-party players, an overhauled interface, independence from crashes in external audio playback engines, and auto-wake support for FileVault-protected home folders. Fixes in 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 resolve a problem with live listening of programs from the guide, properly preserve the listening history between launches, and address a number of cosmetic issues. Full release notes are available. ($32 new, free update, 11.2 MB)
Manage Multiple ChronoSync Documents
If you have multiple ChronoSync documents and need to run your syncs or backups manually, you may find it taxing to open each ChronoSync document and execute it manually. There are two easy methods to simplify managing multiple ChronoSync documents.
- You can add the ChronoSync documents to a Container document. A Container holds multiple ChronoSync documents and enables you to control several ChronoSync documents as if they were one document.
- You can make use of the Scheduled Documents Manager window to collect and organize commonly used ChronoSync documents without scheduling them.
Both methods allow you to schedule or manually run your syncs and backups.

A search reveals a few stations with weekly hour-long programs of this music, none within my local fm reception range. Sigh.
My internet connection is a Verizon cellphone without a data plan that just charges minutes of use. Minutes are "free" after 9:01pm weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Because I don't have a dedicated 24/7 connection I'm curious if it is otherwise possible (with some combination of hardward and software) to "program" the programs I want to download (like TV on a VCR), have them captured somehow, somewhere online so I can download manually periodically when convenient?
I'm open to any and all ideas that might achieve the same result.
