I can listen to it live just fine with Totem.  How could I record it so

Have you tried streamripper? I've not used it in a long time, I'm not
even sure it's actively developed any more. (If it is, I apologize to
the devs...)

streamripper is still active.  "yum list streamripper" is your friend.

My friend tells me he has no such package, at least for FC9 and FC10, so "still active" has to be taken as "in some third party repo" rather than in fedora.

The problem is that these sort of audio streams play with a flash player
and you must intercept the feed with something that is capable of
playing a flash stream.  I don't believe that streamripper can do that.
But mplayer appears to be able to. :)

See Sam's reply for more details on the whole process.

I think mplayer is the better answer. I'm waiting for the new ffmpeg library to be a bit more available, probably a lot of things will get rebuilt and enhanced.
