Most of us like listening our favorite music during long stretches of boredom and no other methods work best than switching to an online radio station. While there is no limit to the number of online radio station we can listen to on the Internet; we can certainly keep a track of the favorite ones using an application – RadioZilla.
RadioZilla is a free application for Windows desktop that allows you to listen to different radio stations and directly download the songs played by them, without having to download any third-party applications. Let us proceed and see how the application really works.
RadioZilla review and features
Visit the homepage and click on the download link. What makes the program really useful is its ability to allow a user to listen and record radios at the same time. For Windows the program is available as .exe file of 4.2 MB size.
Once the download is complete, run the file and select the setup language. Proceed through wizards to complete the installation process.
Once done, open up RadioZilla and you will observe the main interface of the program. It is divided mainly into 3 panes. A list of music genres is displayed in top-left pane. Each can expand and become more specific.
Select your preferred genre and the program should display a list of matching stations. Click on the desired station and it should start streaming immediately. One problem I noticed using this program is that most stations were offline so, I was not able to immediately connect to a station and there was no error message displayed except, ‘Cannot Connect’. However, my second attempt bore results and I was able to listen to a song, luckily!
While listening to a track, you can record it! To do this, just hit the Auto-record button and start recording the track. It does not matter even if you have started recording in the middle.
The program does not require any permission about folders, file names, formats or anything else – it just automatically saves each track as an MP3 file to a suitable folder for your listening convenience.
RadioZilla is compatible with Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows OS such as Windows Vista and Windows XP.
