I want to record radio that broadcast on air of every radio station.
You'd probably need something like this:


But I'm sure this will be very expensive...

yes, I want to record many channel like this but it look very expensive that cannot buy. do you know anyway?
The only possible way is to get such expensive hardware. You could also buy a ton of radio tuners for PC's, one for every channel you want to record simultaneously, and then record from every tuner you have. Also that won't be cheap, and it will take more effort to setup. Besides, you'll probably need several PC's, as you'll be limited by the number of tuners you can use with one PC.

so what hardware and software should be use for record one channel?
What type of Radio? Analog? FM?, or Digital (DAB+)?

For digital radio, there are some on the link below:


Or this would be an example for analog FM radio:


Many of those cards include TV receivers, and usually the included software can also record. If the software doesn't record, you could use audacity which is included in most Linux distro's either by default, or in it's repositories for easy installation, or you can also get it for Windows. If you are using Windows 7, you could also use it's built-in media center for recording, or for Windows 8.x you can get the media center optionally from m$ for an extra fee.


I suggest you visit one or more of your local PC shops and have a look at what they have to offer. The sales people should be able to recommend what is best for you and your local region.

in local, it very hard to find such product because of no need. I used to order hauppauge from amazon but it look that it not stable for operate 24/7. Do you know any product?
I've used hauppauge and didn't have any bigger issues, except that those I have are all pretty old. I used them mainly for TV, not radio, although I did occasionally also listen to radio with it. I also normally use my cable TV provider, who is turning off analog TV beginning of June (radio is still being broadcast analog), but as the radio station are also getting broadcast via the TV channels I don't use their analog radio anymore. For that I'm using a Cablestar HD USB adapter connected to my PC, and that works fine.
