Thanko USB AM/FM radio – playback and record via your PC


For once, a USB device that’s of some use – the Thanko USB AM/FM radio.

Yes, you can pick up the radio if you’re online – but if you’re not or you struggle to stream, this plugs into a USB port and offers radio playback via your PC speakers. But that’s not all – it also records your choice of show in either MP3 or WMA. And if you are not around when that particular show is on, don’t worry, it also has scheduled recording available.

If you like the idea of converting your favourite shows easily to digital format, might be worth a look when it launches in August, priced around £38.
