Why does mplayer no longer play Car Talk?

I used to use mplayer from the console successfully to 
listen to the Car Talk radio show.

As shown below, it now fails with a missing codec, but 
I have not removed any packages from my system.  Any 
suggestions for getting it to work again would
be appreciated.
