Using the CLI tool arecord to capture streaming audio

Is it possible to use arecord to capture streaming audio? I use this tool to capture audio from a radio i have plugged into the input jack on my computer and it works great! I was thinking of using arecord to record shows from the following site:

If this is not possible, are there any other cli tools to record streaming audio?

The recorded shows you can simply download

The live stream seams to be at
But it's down at the moment.

mplayer mms:// -dumpstream -dumpfile out.wmv
Will dump the stream
You can also use mencoder to just get the audio.

You can also use ffmpeg to capture the output of your sound card.
ffmpeg -f oss -i /dev/dsp0.0 -vn -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k capture.mp3
That was for oss, if you use alsa then use your own parameters.
