I am running (in my spare time) a business that is providing time shifting (podcasting) services to radio stations, so I can attest first hand that it massively increases the value of radio.
A station that adds an archive tipically gets an increase in web site traffic of 5% a month, and downloads usually doubles every 2-3 months. Linking and comments on the content usually also increases massively.
So instead of blocking users from time-shifting, they should encourage it !
