Does RP offer a Podcast?
No. Unfortunately, copyright regulations prevent us from doing a podcast at this time. However, there are a number of programs out there that enable you to record MP3 streams and save them to an iPod or other portable player. Unfortunately, the nicest one (Griffin's iFill) appears to have been discontinued.
The most popular is a freeware program called StreamRipper. It is oriented more towards building a library of individual songs (which we don't encourage) rather than towards pure time-shifting (which is entirely legal and appropriate). However, Streamripper has a "single stream" mode that records a specified amount of programming all in one file that you can load onto an iPod or burn to a MP3 CD.
On Linux (& probably in an OS X terminal window) you can use a command like this:
streamripper http://www.radioparadise.com/musiclinks/rp_128.m3u -A -a -d [file path] -M 650
That will record a 650 MB (CD-sized) chunk of RP to a file located wherever you specify. You could automatically set your system to record a file like that every night (via cron) and then have a approx. 11 hour segment of RP programming ready to burn to a CD each morning.
We welcome more user-friendly suggestions on how to accomplish this same task. Most modern car radios will play MP3 CDs, making this a very cool way to listen to RP in your car.
Do you allow downloading of songs?
No. But you can buy a lot of what we play through the iTunes music store. Be sure to use one of our links (like the one on our front page) when you do, so that we get a commission.
