Intermission for OS X

Rogue Amoeba:

To start, Intermission provides a pause button for all audio playback on your Mac. That means any audio, even streaming content, can be paused while taking a call, answering the door, or using the restroom. Interruptions no longer have to mean missing anything. When you get back, just resume playback, right where you left off.

Intermission also makes it possible to jump back and replay missed audio. The ability to rewind live sports, talk radio, teleconferences and more simply can’t be beat. And after you’ve heard what you missed, one click of “Jump to Live” brings you back to the present again.

Intermission is fantastic for use with streaming music services. It stores up to three hours of content, which means you can pause streaming audio on services like Pandora, iTunes Radio, or Spotify to build a buffer, then skip right past the songs, ads, and anything else you don’t want to hear!

This was an instant purchase for me. I've got a handful of things I do at work that this will really be useful for. It's on sale for $15.
