The answer depends on whether that song is from a band you already have a license for or isn’t as long as a 3 minute song. (You can find out more info about different types of licensing by visiting this page. Some bands have a license for 1 song, others have a license for 10, 30, or more songs.)
However, your song will need a valid license at the outset, which is necessary because your audience can hear you on the radio right away without having to wait for the music to load. In some cases, you can pay to have your songs played in different locations like on TV and in movie theaters, but you have to make your music available to the public right away — otherwise nobody will hear your music until they see it.
If you have a 3 minute or longer song, you will want to take advantage of the 1-minute or 0-minute option for the initial download (it’s the quickest format for the radio, according to iTunes). The iTunes format includes a maximum speed of 1 minute, and for a song like “Shawn Was My Friend”, that would be 0:00 — this is exactly 1 minute of an entire song, without the commercials, of which there are about 20. So your 1 minute song would be downloaded as a file of 0:00:01:11 or one minute of a song. If you plan to play that music in a movie theater, that will be 0:00:11:11:11. But that’s still 0:000:00 — which is less than 1 second of your song! You will probably find that 1 minute song is faster to download (and therefore to play) than the 0 minute song.
Note: This isn’t the longest song on the radio (although it is certainly one of the least played). The longest song on the RadioShack CD player is “The King of Limbs” (a.k.a. “The King of Limps”), which has about a 15-minute runtime, and the longest song you hear is “Shawn Was My Friend” (a.k.a. “Shawn Was My Friend”).
If you want to record longer music (say more than 150 minutes but less than 3 1/2 hours), the RadioShack Digital VHS Player offers an option called “Largest Recording” (it lets you record up to 175 minutes, up to 18 hours, or anywhere in between, and with audio that is 100 percent accurate).
