Radio Downloader allows you to easily download radio station content.
It brings Podcast-like abilities to stream downloading, as well as handling Podcasts. This gives you the convenience of being able to subscribe to regular downloads of your favourite programmes, which you can then listen to on your pc or mp3 player.
Radio Downloader is supported on Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP (but not Windows RT), and is freely available for your personal use under the GPL.

I have just released version 0.26.2 of Radio Downloader. This minor update fixes the layout of the BBC Radio Find Programme A-Z pages as well as a small number of other common crashes and reported issues with the previous version.
For full details of the changes in this release, please see the changelog.
I've had a few reports since releasing version 0.26 of Radio Downloader of it being removed from people's machines by Norton Antivirus due to it having a 'low reputation score'. I'd like to take the opportunity to reassure you that Radio Downloader is still perfectly safe. The installer and binaries are signed with my personal code signing certificate to prove that they haven't been tampered with, and the full source code is of course also available to download to prove that it doesn't contain any nasties!
Unfortunately the way to get Radio Downloader whitelisted by Symantec (the author of Norton Antivirus) appears to be for me to fill out rather a large form on their website and then wait several weeks for it to be approved. As I'd rather spend my limited free time improving and supporting Radio Downloader instead of doing Symantec's job for them, I've decided not to do this for the moment.
If you are being affected by this issue, I'd recommend uninstalling Norton Antivirus from your machine and replacing it with the free and excellent Microsoft Security Essentials, which I have been using for years and would recommend most highly.
