Hi Martin :-)

 This is a radio programme, so with GiP 2.94
you should've included "--type=radio" into your commands...

 This "non-issue" was already discussed in the following
Oct 2015 thread:

 This specific show does seem to be a popular one,
already mentioned in:

NB: "--pid" / "--url" do not require "--get "("-g"), they initiate
recording on their own already...

Try in the terminal:

get_iplayer --type=radio --pid=p03dzcf7 --radiomode=flashaacstd (/hlsaacmed)

As alredy exlpained, due to this being on WS, either flashaacstd / hlsaacmed
will fetch an M4A audio file @96kbps HE-AACv1.
If , like Roger Tricker, you want an MP3 file, add "--mp3" into your command
(but in that case your ffmpeg binary should've been configured with

Happy listening,
