Time-Shifting Radio?

I was reading Paul Vick, who agrees with Carl Franklin that the "This American Life" weekly NPR radio program rocks (I'm paraphrasing : ). In addition, I really like Garrison Keillor, "Whad'Ya Know?" and a bunch of the financial programs on AM radio. However, unlike my time-shifting TV appliance, I don't have any good way to time-shift radio (the AM stuff is rife with commercials, so really needs a fast-forward feature). Anyone got something for me? Ideally, I'd be able to dump programs to an MP3 player for convenient playback.
