Second this, OP is defining a specific link, not referring to something like "latest"
OP doesn't define what "wee hours" means, but assuming 2am
# Example: echo 'command "argument"' | at time
echo 'wget "https://archive.org/compress/The_Bob_Hope_Program/formats=VBR%20MP3&file=/The_Bob_Hope_Program.zip"' | at 0200
This will run the wget command the next time 2am rolls around.
Also watch to see if your computer goes into sleep mode to preserve power.
Personally, if you plan on doing this more frequently, I'd suggest getting something like a Raspberry Pi
so that you can run it 24/7 - so that your main computer doesn't have too (and drain too much power)
