How to download audio from NPR stream?

I want to download the audio from streams of concerts hosted on NPR's website - these are audio broadcasts that one can stream in their NPR Media Player (I'd like to be able to listen to these while not connected to the internet). Is there an easy way to do this? I've got Windows 7 on a laptop and XP on another. Thanks for any help. [more inside]

ID some This American Life songs?

This American Life has at least a dozen instrumentals that they use over and over as background music. The Happy Flute Song, the Things Are Kind of Tense Song, and so on. I've really grown to like many of them, but I cannot identify any of them. Can TAL fans identify any of the standard music beds?

Country in Ethiopia

RadioFilter: A friend told me she heard a segment on country music's popularity in Ethiopia on WNYC (820 AM, public radio in New York) this morning. Despite searching the websites of every show they aired, I cannot find audio or any mention of the segment. Did anyone else catch this, and if so, can you help me find it?

Unknown Song.

I would like help with the identify of a song I heard on NPR a few years ago. It was something of a "metasong" with lyrics stating the part of the song currently being sung. Such as "this is the bridge" and "Here comes the chorus". I would like to hear this song again.
