Want to download mp3s with wget


I've looked at a few web pages including:
http://lifehacker.com/software/downl...get-161202.php
as well as the man pages.

I want to download mp3 files from a website into one directory.

I tried:
bash-3.1$ wget -r -H -nd -N -np -A.mp3 -w20 -U Mozilla --limit-rate=20k -P spiritual-gifts2 -erobots=off http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceL...iritual_Gifts/


At the above address most of the topics have a Read Listen and Download > Audio link

I'm don't know what I'm doing wrong. How do I navigate around a web page to find the files I want?
All I'm getting is wget downloading the index.html files and then rejecting them.

Also I would like to download the html files into another directory. Is it possible to have the index.html files saved as the name of the file?

Thanks.

All the audio files are in http://www.desiringgod.org/media/audio/ but it looks as though they have configured it so the files can only be accessed via the link you posted which has the download location only accessible if you have java.

I can access them if I connect directly to the files:
wget http://www.desiringgod.org/media/1982/19820912.mp3
but I need to do this for each file. There has to be a better way.

Is there a way for wget to go through the download > audio links at http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceLibrary/TopicIndex/87_Spiritual_Gifts/
