Windows 7: I want to record Live audio streaming

I want to record Live audio streaming

I want to record a radio show from live streaming. It is a 2 hour show.
Their podcasts they post on the radio’s site is usually dead. I get this message (We're sorry, there was something wrong with your HTTP request or the page you requested does not exist. Please try back later.) It takes a while for them to fix it.
So I want to start recording them thru Live streaming
Anyone have an idea on a streaming recording program I can use for this ( Free would be nice)
I am running windows 7 But I have an xp computer if the program is not 7 compatable.
I now have to work during this show so if it has the ability to schedule recording would be great.
I would buy a good program If I need to

The free "Audacity" recording program will record for you. It also has a timer option to record at a specific time like you want.

Audacity is limited in what it can record.
Live streaming audio is only recorded through microphone, which is very poor sound including users environment noise and feedback ... v2.0.3
I see no evidence that most recent v2.0.5 is any different

I don't use Audacity (I have a recording studio), but I've tested it and it works with my Stereo Mix. It will record streaming audio that way and the fidelity is whatever the streaming audio is. Save the sound files as wav files for full fidelity.

Absolutely not. Records anything (Mic (internal\external), Line in & Stereo Mix > CD player, radio stream, flash music, movie sound), used it for years here, xp, vista, w7, w8. It's great. Any eventual limitations are caused by the pc itself (Stereo mix either not enabled or liquidated by pc\soundcard manufacturer).

You are right ... my apologies.
My Toshiba only has "Mic" ... nothing else in hidden devices either.

^^^ No problem, only felt the need to give Audacity it's well deserved praise. It's 1st class software. For those without stereo mix (or with problems getting Audacity to see any recording sources), it may be worth trying something like this > Virtual Audio Cable Home Page

I have looked at VAC and TotalRecord web sites.

To capture streamed internet audio ...
• TotalRecorder --- would require Pro version
• VAC -- I assume will work -- their home page is very basic making it difficult for a dummy to interpret.

I assumed that a virtual-sound-card (software) would be the intermediary between the internet stream and Audacity ?

Am I on the right path ?

I think so.

Here's an old blurb about it from maybe 2005; probably still valid:

Total Recorder uses a virtual sound driver to capture the sound output from another program. By installing this driver, and setting this device as the default, different sound reproducing programs send their output stream to Total Recorder's driver and not to the driver of a real device. Total Recorder then passes the information to the sound card driver.
