  • Burning CDs from powwow radio

    Hello friends!
    I am new here only discovering the site a few days ago. I was thrilled to hear the 24/7 radio option and am interested in making some cds so I can forward them to my niece in SD to help her practice for her jingle dress dancing competitions.
    I stayed up almost all of last night trying to download software that allows one to be able to record from internet radio, but the prices of their packages are outrageous! Has anyone found a free site or maybe a program installed on my new HP Windows 8 based computer that would allow me to do this? I know I have to place the music on my computer then I can burn the CDs but I can't seem to figure out how to do it?
    Anyone have any info on how to do this? Thanks in advance for your help.
    BTW, I am from Rosebud, SD and am Lakota Sioux....not a cheap *** trying to get something for free!!

    That would be piracy. I'm not going to lie, it is possible but download any of those programs at your own risk as they usually contain viruses and other malware and or they steal your credit card information and sell it over seas.

    Try looking online, some drums or studios that record their stuff will post songs for free. Sometimes you can just simply e-mail a drum and ask them for a song or two and they might give you a free song(s). Otherwise just buy them for like the dollar or so that they charge on a place like Amazon or iTunes etc.

    The webmaster and the site pay a hefty yearly licensing fee for the rights to play those songs online.

      Plenty of good songs on iTunes for 99 cents each.

        Thank you both for your suggestions.
        After reading a few threads here and on other sites, I realized this was indeed piracy and did not fully understand how the whole thing worked. I am in my 50's and as much as I might think I keep up on issues, music of any sort (other than live powwow music) is just not of any interest to me. I never listen to radio stations and mainly have CNN on in the background for the 'company' in an empty house.
        I recall the whole napster thing but even that fight did not interest my attention at the time.
        So, it's off to iTunes and a few other sites I found that offer the .99 options...which actually works out for me as I am interested only in songs from my tribe. Growing up my Unchi would constantly be singing and her favs (and mine) were the National anthem and War Honor songs (my oldest brother was killed in Vietnam). To hear either of those at any time brings a tear to my eye and so many memories flood back...
        Anyway again thanks for taking the time to warn me of the dangers of doing so and also turning me onto iTunes. Although I am on SSDI, I think I can afford a few songs @ .99 or even better if I could find a Lakota drum group who is willing to sell one of their CDs.

          You are welcome. Please feel free as well to drop a post in the introductions threads and share your advice and ideas on our powwow threads and the random banter in the Chit Chat area.

            Looking to purchase Lakota Sioux CDs directly from drums
            by Elo Janis
            I have been searching for some good quality Lakota powwow CDs for a few weeks now and would like to purchase directly from the drums themselves so they get the $$ directly instead of using iTunes.
            If there are any Lakota drums (Rosebud or Pine Ridge primarily) with extra CDs that they would...

            Written Powwow Music?

            My father is a song maker. His father was a song maker and his father was a song maker. As they passed these songs down, there was no written form of music to learn from. Yet, each knew hundreds of songs. I would estimate my father knows over 600 songs from different tribes and genres that he has stored...

            Recording Drum Groups and Dancers for Profit
            by Wakalapi
            A LOT of people record audio and/or video at powwows; perhaps mostly for personal use, but we really don't know in all cases where each video is going or if it may appear for sale somewhere. There are some recorders are very obviously commercial; they bought huge $2500 high resolution video cameras...
