Audio Hijack´s main purpose is to record internal sounds that come from some software on your computer. So the best way to use it for your purpose would be to find a stream of the radio station you want, either from their webpage, from iTunes or some other service, and use Audio Hijack to record the sound.
If you want to record an external audio source through the line-in port of your computer, any recording software would do - GarageBand, Audacity, Sound Studio ... no need to purchase Audio Hijack.
(Since you have been "experimenting" without success - are you sure your computer does have a line-in port? You don't say what model Mac you have.)

Yes, my Mac does have a line-in port ( I have an Intel desktop 10.8.4 )
When I use Garageband to record an opera of over 5 hours in length, after just over 3 hours the recording stops with the message :
‘File size limit reached. Audio recordings are limited to a file size of 2 gigabytes. This recording has reached the file size limit. Recording will stop, and the recording up to this point will be preserved'
. . . even though I had been told a 40BPM project can record/play for 16:39:48. Apparently, there is no way round this.
I know Audacity is free, but I am cautious downloading unknown software, having read many problems encountered uninstalling etc : reviews also say the many features can be difficult for the novice to master.
Although Sound Studio costs, it is reassuring it is sold on the App Store.
I mentioned Audio Hijack Pro because a previous post said he had been using it for many years trouble-free.
I have 'BBC iPlayer' installed (for hearing BBC broadcasts for 7 days after transmission). Although I don't think it can be used for 'live' broadcasts, but I may be wrong.
If BBC iPlayer isn't suitable, how would I find a suitable stream (from iTunes, for example, or some other) ?
