There was a time when the 320k streams were only available live.  The
BBC have nicely been providing 320kbps recordings on iPlayer for a
while now (though I've not found anything that wasn't on Radio 3 in

something like
   get_iplayer --type radio --get "Late Junction"
results in a 320kbps recording from where I'm sitting.
