Well..it works but the site must be using IceCast or ShoutCast
servers to stream the music.
Trying to solve that, I came up with another
method which will save ANY website audio. I used Audacity, with
the ALSA default selected. Then select Mix0 on the input side, and
start recording. You'll have to adjust levels of course, if they are too
high lower the pcm volume or raise it if they are too low.
Streamripper of course works much better on music sites using the
Icecast or Shoutcast systems as it will split up the songs.
