Radio Downloader

A Screenshot of Radio Downloader

Radio Downloader is an easy to use Windows application for podcast subscriptions and downloads.  It also features a plugin framework that potentially allows it to provide podcast-like downloads of audio content from other providers who do not publish podcasts.

Radio Downloader is supported on Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP (but not Windows RT), and is freely available for your use under the terms of the GPL.

Download Version 0.28

Radio Downloader requires the .NET Framework 2.0, which you can get via Windows Update, or download from

The Return of Radio Downloader

I've just released version 0.28 of Radio Downloader. Unfortunately, the main change in this release is the removal of the BBC Provider but there are also a couple of small bug fixes.

I have also taken the opportunity to move the source code from a Subversion repository on my desktop to a git repository on GitHub to make it easier to contribute. My plan is to also move the bugs from Bugzilla to use the GitHub issue tracker (if feasable), so please bear with me while I make these changes.

Radio Downloader and BBC Radio

Following a request from the BBC, I have removed the Radio Downloader source and installers. They will return shortly minus the BBC Radio Provider plugin (e.g. the ability to download BBC Radio programmes).

My apologies for the disappointment that this will cause but I hope that you will understand. I believe that the BBC is planning to offer downloads of radio programmes from 2014.

On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and support over the years and for putting up with my sporadic updates. I had hoped to do more to Radio Downloader over the last six months but unfortunately I have not been well and life seems to have been rather hectic...
