Everybody knew this already except me, apparently!
Itś very simple, don't need tail, nor fifo. Just dump the stream and
play it with sox!
mplayer -ao pcm -aofile /mplayer.wav -cache 1000 -vc null -vo null
I do that in the background.
Voilá: playing and recording at the same time.
PS. Very nice classical station... the best.
