    I bought this utility called Total Recorder, and it does the job well. I don't have the link, but google does. :)

    Right click, save the .ram file, open it with notepad, get the URL for the .rm file (only if it's http served, if it's not, then an app is needed, like the one funky mentioned.) then save that.

    Converting real audio to any other format only acheives a larger file size, the quality will still be that of the stream (ie, poor compared to a 192k mp3 or 2.0 ogg)
