If it's FM you're after, a cheap USB FM tuner and a little scripting goes a long way.
The national public radio station in NZ has only recently added online streams but a) it's not real time and b) it is of poor quality - think 24-48kbit mono wma format. I have some perl-fu that scrapes the online program listing, consults a PVR style config file of programs to record, schedules them with atd and takes care of encoding, file naming and archiving. Works a treat.
