People have had problems in the past connecting to particular servers
from particular networks.

You could try something like this:
  $ get_iplayer --get --type=radio --pid b05tl3jk --mode flashaacstd2

which would force get-iplayer to use the second content delivery
server it finds (rather than the first, which appears to be getting
stuck for you).
