TIVO for radio?

Can a new website do for radio what TiVo and digital video recorders did for TV?

“It consolidates radio programming from all around the globe - music and talk - and makes it very easy to find, and then listen to it when you like and where you like,” says Bill Moore of RadioTime.com. RadioTime.com is, at the free level, very basically a worldwide radio listing similar to a TV guide. The $40 yearly fee, though, allows you to record webcasted shows and move them to a digital music player.

Sadly, they only have seven mainstream country stations thus far. But, since one of them is an A&O client (CHAT), the service caught my eye.

Not surprisingly, they have ten times as many alt.country and classic country ones (if a tree falls in the forest and no one is listening, is it making any sound?).
