Under Suse I just clicked on the link and (after registering to realplayer)
 it just worked. Now I want to record the program to a normal audio CD
 so my non-technical non-internet parents can listen to it.

(The intent is noble even if the legalities are murky)

Is there a plug-in to the arts sound system
 that can hive off a copy to a file?

Or is there a Linux realplayer-client-clone that can snarf programs?
