Listening to music is a good way to relax while working. However, in order to listen to music, you have to have some good songs stored in your computer. Even though there are lots of online services available that allow you to listen to music without downloading it, some good songs should be available in your hard drive in case you lose the internet connection. You can download songs to your computer from various sites, but how do you know which track to get? Randomly downloading songs hoping to find something good is obviously not the way to go. To find good new songs, what you can do is listen to the radio, and then if you like a song, download it to your computer. Again, listening to a song on the radio, searching for it on the internet and then downloading it seems too much trouble to just create a playlist. Today, we have an application for Windows called RadioZilla that allows you to, listen to a wide variety of radio stations, and directly download the currently playing songs, without having to use any third party application to complete the process. Keep reading to find out more about RadioZilla.
The fact that the application allows you to listen to, as well as download songs from within a single interface, makes the application very useful. The main interface is divided into 3 panes. The top left pane contains the list of all the different genres that radio stations are available in. Other than the main genres, such as Alternative, Blues, Classical, Country, Electronic, Folk, Jazz, Latin, Metal, New Age etc, if you click the arrow button present beside each genre in the list, it will open a list of all the available sub-genres. For instance, if you open up Alternative, there is another long list containing sub-genres, including Adult Alternative, Britpop, Classic Alternative, College, Dancepunk, Dream Pop, Emo, Goth, Grunge, Hardcore, Indie Pop, Indie Rock etc. When you select a genre, the list of radio stations are instantly populated in the lower left pane. Click any radio station and it will instantly start playing. The Artist, Name and Album Art of the currently playing track is displayed in right pane.
Click Edit at the top to access Options for changing the default save folder, to toggle between Play and Stop, and choose to Auto Record every song or Save Current Song.
