You can right click them on a PC and 'save as'.

If you have Firefox, you can get an add-on called 'Download Helper' that lets you save audio files or videos such as what's on YouTube. You can then convert them to Windows Media files and put them on CDs or DVDs. It's free, although unless you register, you get a little icon on a not terribly annoying place on the window. In Firefox: Tools/add ons/get add ons.

You should probably know about Vuze as well--tons of streams, downloads, and a search engine. You use it to find and download TV programs, as well. It does have ads, though, and you have to be careful, because there is a great tendency to download a lot of stuff you're never going to even use, and it is really easy to fill up a hard drive--

I freqently use internet "radio" and do "captures."

A simple (and free) program (and small) is found at: davee.com

Just to add... there are several 'radio' applications for Windows that allow you to listen to streaming broadcasts, and optionally, save what you hear.

Screamer is a free one

Raima is not free, but does a LOT (It originally was...I still have the older, free version)

Nexus if free, bur requires registration (It also says it searches for songs, as well as playing stations

Iradio is also free but gives you a toolbar to get to radio stations.

There may be more by now. I use Screamer the most.

The Davee.com - records whatever comes through the speakers of your computer.

It is a simple way to capture things like police and fire dispatches and phone conversations....anything through the speakers.

If you have the settings right, audacity will recording anything that plays through speaker, including online music, and music input from a turntable, microphone, or cassette deck. I haven't found a recording or sound editing job it can't do - and it does a great job of it.

I was going to mention RadioSure when Mudcat went down, but I see it still hasn't been mentioned. http://www.radiosure.com/ I prefer it to Screamer by a bit. Check it out.

I have Audacity on my Mac. Also Audio Hijack will record any streaming audio, and is available for both Mac and PC.

i tried audacity but it wouldn't do it for what i was listening to.
it works very well for recorded stuff although i have sussed out the settings i like yet, more guess work and fiddling with things.
