In this episode I talk about my solution for capturing terrestrial radio so that I can listen to it at my own convenience. I use a bash script, cron jobs, and the streamripper package. here are some links to things I mentioned in the podcast.

In this episode I talk about the way I use shell scripting on a day-to-day basis. I am not employed in a technical field, so the fact that I use shell scripts at all surprises most people. I am just a music history professor with an enthusiasm for Linux and free software. Although I have dabbled a bit with Python, I don't feel nearly as comfortable with Python as I do with bash, so all of the scripts I mention in this episode are written for bash.
Here are links to blog posts about some of the scripts mentioned in the show.
