Default Record songs from radio to HDD or CD

Is there an attachment or unit out there than can directly copy a song from a car radio to a CD or Harddrive while the song is playing?

No, while your driving, and a song comes on the car radio, is there a way to copy it to a CD or Hardrive while in the vehicle, then take it to your computer?

Bring a laptop with? Other than that I've never seen a way to do it.

Do you have a CD burner or HD in your car?

Easiest way? A notepad, write down what you wanna hear, and DL it to your HD.

No cd or hd in my car. I would use the notepad but half the time I dont know what the song is called when its playing so it defeats the purpose.

I remember there was a radio that had a memory stick in it. I think you could record songs off the radio directly onto the stick. Ill try looking around and see if anything pops up.
