Home taping is killing music

In John Peel tradition, today we spent some time taping radio shows of interest. Found that the best way to enable sound card capture is to use alsamixer and unmute capture (space bar).

tng@coalman:/home/tng$ arecord -f cd -t wav -r 44000 -D hw:0,0 interesting_show.wav
Recording WAVE 'interesting_show.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 44000
Hz, Stereo

Install vorbis tools to allow wav->ogg conversion.

sudo apt-get install vorbis-tools
