I have however discovered something useful about recording 
multi-part radio shows: the parts can be downloaded and
recorded simultaneously.  A script such as the following works
very efficiently:

mplayer -really-quiet -ao pcm -aofile foo-01.wav 'rtsp://url.../foo-01.ra' & 
mplayer -really-quiet -ao pcm -aofile foo-02.wav 'rtsp://url.../foo-02.ra' & 
mplayer -really-quiet -ao pcm -aofile foo-03.wav 'rtsp://url.../foo-03.ra' &
