As it turns out, streamripper is even better than mplayer. The command line
switches are very good and pretty much do what I want. With mplayer I
needed a script, streamripper allows me record with a single command.

More importantly, mplayer recorded to wav, which made for large files. My 4
hour recording was several Gigabytes before I used lame to convert to MP3.
streamripper records directly to AAC. The recording is 60MiB in size.

Thanks again for suggesting it.
