I think every "radio" whether defined by software or bricks and mortar capacitors, resistors and diodes was always meant to be used in the moment.
One of its greatest attributes is the ability to listen (and enjoy) live while analyzing the "World" around the station you are listening to - that is: Real time spectrum analysis in addition to real time listening. That you can "record" entire blocks of spectrum for playback at your convenience is a cheeky bonus. For instance: Want to record your favourite FM radio show while you are away? No problem!
