Years ago there was the Betamax case. It’s been upheld in the courts since. We have the right to record off the air programming for our own personal use as long as a human hits the record button. The Supreme Court upheld this is a case involving remote digital personal video recorders. This means you don’t have to have the recording device on your premises. Michael Robertson capitalized on this legal premise by bringing you DAR FM. It’s free with some limitations and you can buy an upgrade product.

In a nutshell, DAR lets you record any radio station I ever looked up for up to 5 hours at a whack and send it to your smart phone or computer. You can even use a Roku. If it’s on the air, chances are DAR has you covered to record it.

I’m not sure it’s worth $40 a year to me, but it is very cool. 1 scheduled recording is free. So pick your pundit or grab a ball game.

Try it, you’ll like it.

You might also like an MLB radio schedule here.

My pick for tonight is the late show on WCCO in Minneapolis at 11PM CDT for a few hours of Imagination Theater, Twilight Zone… stuff.
