Micah listens to the radio over WiFi and he recently heard that the Reciva internet guide will be shutting down. Will that make his WiFi radio a paperweight? Leo says that as long as the URL for the radio station doesn't change, it should still work. The presets should definitely work. But once the radio station changes the stream URL, he will lose it.
Adam likes to record Laker games on audio to listen to them later while he's on his walks. He wants an all-in-one solution so he doesn't have to transfer it to an iPod or something. Leo says that CCrane has an all-in-one device that time shifts and records to MP3. It's called the CC Witness Plus. It's about $150 and it's like a DVR for radio. It records MP3 to a memory card. It also has microphones so he can record directly with it.
Joe wants to know why his car radio doesn't have a capability like TIVO, where it can record what he's listening to and allow him to rewind it. Leo says that CCrane's CC Witness is a portable radio recorder that does that. It's $149.
Leo recommends downloading and listening to podcasts of most radio programs for free as a better alternative to this.
