You can get DAB radios with PVR-alike capabilities, such as instant
rewind, EPGs, recording of specific programmes. The one I'm familiar
with[1] is the Pure Evoke 3[2] which records to SD card but I'm sure
Other Manufacturers are available. A quick search of the googles
indicates that it should be possible to get it to play any mp2s (and
possibly mp3s) it finds on its SD card, so that might be a solution to
the original problem.


[1] Because my mum has one.
