    I would favour a modular approach: use some fairly
ordinary recording software to capture each programme as a
.wav file (I prefer .au, but .wav seems more common these
days) and then while the next programme is airing, the
previous can be compressed into MP3 and Ogg/Vorbis, perhaps
for posting on your Web site. This could be automated fairly

    I'm assuming you want to do this for live shows.  If you
also have pre-recorded shows, you probably already get those
in digital (hopefully uncompressed) format.
