There is a free, open source alternative that works for Last.fm as well. It's called iRadio Capture 2.0, google it.

Please note that this is trial software and cannot record more than 3 minutes of Pandora unless you pay for the software. I deleted it, as I did not think it was worth $39.99.

Although this is technically illegal, due to the terms of use referenced by Dchall8, the fact of the matter is that it has not been challenged in court. My guess is that a) the court would take into account that you are recording the stream for personal use only, and b) the case would be similar to the early video taping cases, where the courts found that recording copyrighted materials for personal use or personal archives does not violate copyright as it does not infringe on the copyright holders ability to sell the product and make a profit. I'm not a lawyer, but it would be nice to have one comment on this.

Alternatives:

Library--I think it's ok to record material you've checked out, and it helps reinforce the artists' popularity in the library system.

Buy songs thru a listener-sponsored website, it helps out the station.

Used CDs n vinyl.

At least sign up for Pandora's paid service, it's REALLY cheap. Doesn't make it any more legal.

While you are signing up for the free Pandora account, pay particular attention to item 3 in the terms which reads in part...

3. RESTRICTIONS

You agree that you will not:

3.1 use the Pandora Services to reproduce copyrighted materials;

3.2 copy, store, edit, change, prepare any derivative work of or alter in any way any of the tracks streamed through the Pandora Services;

Hello, thanks for your comment. Well, we just use this software to record pandora music for personal entertainment, but not distribute them in any form. Besides, we can say it is legal to record streaming audio. So do not worry that you will violate the music copyright if using.
If you reread the Pandora agreement, it does not allow music to be recorded for personal use. The personal use you are thinking of is for CDs that you have purchased. Sometimes you are allowed to make one copy to back up your original.

Note also that just because you say it is legal, it is not legal and you can be fined for theft. One of my neighbors got sued by the music industry for copying 34 songs. Her fine is over $200,000. Seems a little outrageous to me, too. She was 17 years old when they sued her.  She will be paying this off the rest of her life. 
To the record companies, I say bring it on. They sue average people for ridiculous amounts, and they sued limewire for 75 trillion USD, 13 trillion more than exists in the world. after all that they treat artists like crap and destroy the very industry that has made them all their money. short of going 1984 on us, they'll never stop pirating on a large enough scale to mean anything. To quote Humungus, "just walk away." preventing pirating is a pipe dream.
read 3.1 Again--it says --Thou shalt NOT !!!!!!!!
