The hackish way I've done before is use wireshark do dump the network 
stream.  In reality, I think you might be able to get by with fetch.  I 
just tried and fetch closes the connection before buffering, using 
telnet does the transmit.  The trick is mp3 streams are just inefficient 
mp3's.  Maybe wget would work.  You can add a cron job to start it and 
another to kill it.
