MacOS X: record from line in?

While I'm asking questions about MacOS X software (see previous post about iTunes), can anyone suggest software to use if I want to record from line in/microphone?

Aim: record a play reading on a casette and get it onto the iMac so I can put copies on CD.

MSN Contacts

And while I'm in the mood for complaining about software... This one's about MSN Messenger (using it for work, not by choice).

Why can't I rename a contact or provide something like an alternative description or nickname? With Trillian (and possibly GAIM - I haven't checked), it is possible to rename a contact. But with MSN, I can only see the ID (email address) and the name provided by the user. Sometimes neither of these is useful.

If I occasionally need to discuss something with Bob in Development, I have to remember that "Cameo" (foo123@example.com) is the one I need to double-click. Why can't I give it a label like "Bob"?
