    I enjoyed listening to the MJ Morning Show on the radio in St. Louis at home this summer, and I recently discovered that they broadcast it live online now too. The show is on every weekday morning from 6 am-10 am, and it's available in a Windows Media stream. Between being up late writing papers and such and morning classes, I am not able to listen to it at broadcast time. What I'd really like is to have my PowerBook open the stream at 6 am, and start recording with WireTap. Close the stream at 10 am and stop WireTap. It'd be nice if it would also compress it to mp3 to save disk space, but not necessary. I guess if I need to, I could open the stream before I go to bed and just let it run until afternoon when I could shut it off, then only WireTap would need to be automated. Can this be done? Will it be easier in Tiger's Automator?

    Thanks for your help guys.
