    You need something like Audio Hijack.

    Haven't used it that much, appears to have lots more features. Looked confusing a first, but it's pretty simple to do basic recordings from iTunes radio. There's a handy recording timer and piles of DSP/mixing doodads. Just updated to the new pro version and it's even easier to use.
    The pro version of AudioHijack works to record streaming radio or any connected audio source. The regular version appears promising and $10 less.

    Does everything it says and can file (radio) recordings right to the iTunes library.
    Streaming radio audio quality is limited, and why anyone would need or want to use the signal processing tools on good music, is a mystery, but this is one handy application to capture (and file) any connected music/media connected to your Mac.

    Wiretap Studio will do it as well, although it is more expensive, it can also export directly to iTunes.

    I have Audio Hijack and find it's awesome. Easy to use and does a great job.

    Anyone know of a free or cheap (less than $20) option? I ONLY need to record internet radio.

    Using sn0w leopard, FYI.

    Cheers!

    Bump-Anyone using a cheap piece of software to record internet streams?

    I see a lot out there but they are all like $50+ and do much more than I need, which is to just record the stream. I don't need to do anything beyond that (i.e. edit).
