Ok, here's the deal.
When I was in New Orleans, I got hooked on "Walton and Johnson" - a
radio show in the mornings, played locally on Bayou 95 (95.7MHz). 
They're in different markets, as well.

According to their affiliate list, their Houston home seems to be the
only place to get their daily podcasts.  Without going through the
rig-a-more-role of downloading each clip independently, I thought I'd
just wget 'em all.  I have, in the past, figured out how to use a
wildcard to get multiple files from a site, but for some reason the
-A.mp3 (in this case) option doesnt' seem to be working.

Here's the site
http://www.the950.com/cc-common/podcast/single_podcast.html?podcast=mornings.xml

here's the url to an .mp3 file
http://a1135.g.akamai.net/f/1135/18227/1h/cchannel.download.akamai.com/18227/podcast/HOUSTON-TX/KPRC-AM/5.22.08-8A_4.mp3?CPROG=PCAST&MARKET=HOUSTON-TX&NG_FORMAT=talk&SITE_ID=676&STATION_ID=KPRC-AM&PCAST_AUTHOR=Walton_%26_Johnson&PCAST_CAT=Walton_%26_Johnson&PCAST_TITLE=Walton_and_Johnson


Certainly I know that ever thing after the question mark is superfluous
(as are big words) but the command of

wget -A.mp3
http://a1135.g.akamai.net/f/1135/18227/1h/cchannel.download.akamai.com/18227/podcast/HOUSTON-TX/KPRC-AM/
didn't work, and I'm desperately trying to figure out why.

AdvTHANKSance
