I do a 3 hour rock and roll oldies show once a week on our local FM radio station. I mix each show myself using an Alesis mix board hooked to my HP Laptop and Windows 7 pro. Everything is going smoothly and I am getting pretty good at cleaning up my voice overs and so on but I now have a WONDERFUL chance to interview the man who produced the DVD "The Wrecking Crew" about his father Tommy Todesco and the other studio musicians of the early rock & roll days.
My concern is how to set up my system so I can record our interview and use it on my show. I am sure there are lots of high end electronics out there but I can not afford to pay attention let alone build a top end recording studio so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do my recording and editing in Adobe Audition 3 and have yet to figure out how to record my voice in track 1 and the person I am interviewing in track 2. Skype to Skype call recording may be an option but does it save the recording in MP3 or WAV or something I can insert into Adobe Audition 3?

Thank you in advance

I have been doing a weekly radio show for our local FM radio station, it's a Rock & Roll oldies show I pick the music, introduce songs mix the segments and send them to the station via email or take them in on a thumb drive. They plug it all into the computers there and Fridays from noon to 3 pm my show is on the air!! Whoo HOOoo It is great fun.

The equipment I use is an Alesis mix board connected to my laptop which runs Win7 Pro. I use a Neewer MW-800 Microphone, and Audio-technica headphones. I do all the mixing in Adobe Audition 3. I have been doing my own mixing now for 6 months and am feeling pretty comfortable with it all.

BUT now I have an opportunity to do an interview that needs to be done online like on Skype or over the phone and I am getting overwhelmed watching YouTube videos and reading forums.

Basically I want to record our conversation and save it into Audition so I can clean it up and put it on the air, BUT I need some guidance folks HELP??

I use Adobe Audition 3, I don't record my own music, digitize music from my collection of albums from the 50's 60's and 70's and save it all to my hard drive, then I create 15 minute "segments" that are downloaded to the radio stations computers and they play my show, basically all i do so far is say Hi folks and introduce songs and add in some ditty of information about a concert I went to or a story about a specific artist I have met, that kind of stuff. But this interview thing is a huge opportunity I want it to come out great.

Maybe you could use Vocaroo. Is a great online tool that you can use to do voice recordings via your browser, and you can download the file in an mp3 format.
