I love the idea of audiofeast...can't justify the price, though. Do you use
it? How has your experience been? Right now I have my own "audiofeast"
setup which uses TotalRecorder to record all of my favorite NPR and American
Public Radio shows in the middle of the night. Less convenient, but also
free and less limiting.

I used it for a while, and thought it was pretty good. I thought the sound quality was much better than most internet radio. The only problem I had was the music selection would not refresh daily as promised.
I have a very similar setup as you for my NPR streams now and Radioparadise for my music.

And yes ther is an Audiofeast plugin. I haven't tried it on version 6, but here's a quick link to the info.

Can you grab stuff from the NPR archives that way as well?

Sure--you have to record it in real time but you can grab anything that's
available on their site. And with cartalk programming you can even get the
old shows despite them not being "officially" available on the site--the
files still exist so you can just follow the naming convention to listen to
any show you want.
