Hi, is there a recording of this show available?

I heard the beginning and was interested to see how it ended.

From the radio show's home page, click the "[AUDIO] Latest Programme"
link at the top right, in this case,


Then right click the "Listen using stand-alone Real Player" link and
select "Save Link As" and saved this file to your home directory. This
.ram file is just a Real Audio playlist, detailing where the stream
is. Real Audio streams can be played with MPlayer, so install that the
usual way, and then open a Terminal and:

   mplayer -ao pcm -ao pcm:file=out.wav -playlist opensource.ram

This results in a large .wav file, so encode it into a nice and small
Ogg Vorbis file with oggenc, part of Debian/Ubuntu's vorbis-tools

   oggenc out.wav

Then delete the .wav and rename the .ogg appropriately:

   rm out.wav
   mv out.ogg "BBC Radio 4 - Free and Open Source Software.ogg"

Then use the nice and simple TagTool to add tags so you can tell what
it is in you music player.
