The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio play is reaching its quandary phase, after the tertiary phase was broadcast on BBC in september/october 2004. The first episode will be broadcast on May 3rd, and I hope it will be available as a webcast, like the episodes of the tertiary phase were.

If you want to record the webcast (which was available in RealAudio format the last time), you can use mplayer; it can decode RealAudio and dump streams as WAV files. (I use Audacity for postprocessing the stream, and Lame for encoding it to MP3.) A howto for ripping streams with mplayer can be found here; basically, you use the “PCM” audio device (-ao pcm) and tell it to dump the data to a file (-aofile h2g2.wav).
