You can select any radio station to stream, and then recording will be possible. For recording the radio station, you can select custom destination location as well.

Just like above-mentioned radio recorders, search feature and marking any radio station as favorite is also possible here. If any of your favorite radio station is missing in the list, then option to add new station is also available here.
It provides a beautiful interface and is easy to operate. Its interface can also be minimized to system tray to perform other tasks uninterruptedly. There are some other features available, such as: view weather for your city, search and read books, etc. But those features didn’t work for me. But all its main features worked perfectly.
Screamer Radio is another useful software to stream radio stations and record songs. It provides a very unique feature that it can record full song even if the song recording was started from the middle. A record buffer feature helps to record full song. It also has the feature to record only current playing track. A huge list of presets is also provided by Screamer Radio which contains radio stations in bulk.

If a radio station has more than one source, then it will also try to play a track from the second source (if first source doesn’t work). It comes with portable as well as in installer version (less than 3 MB).
All of these Internet radio recorders are beneficial to directly stream your favorite radio stations from desktop and record them as well. However, Nexus Radio is the clear winner from all these radio recorders as many interesting features are present in it. Still, other radio recorders also provide their own unique feature(s) and are good to use.
