    Sorry, but I don't know of anything that will let you record FM radio onto your iPod. By the way, the iTrip will broadcast tunes from your iPod onto a certain frequency so that you can listen to it on a regular FM radio but it wont collect a signal from FM stations and let you listen to them on your iPod. :)

    Ummmm. The iTrip does not bring in FM radio stations, it sends the iPod headphone output out as an FM signal that you can pick up on a car radio and play through your car speakers.

    The iPod can only record in 8 KHz mono sound, not suitable for music.

    To the best of my knowledge, no, well not with an iTrip. Sorry about that.

    If you really need an annoying DJ telling you their opinions on irrelevant issues, you could look through iTunes' podcasting lists. :D
