[Bug-wget] Dubious Dash

Those pesky manifest.mpd URLs -- the noncompliant (unverifiable) ones, that

 I go to great lengths to unchain myself from the browser.  Can anyone
recommend a concise wget command line that mimics Mozilla while retrieving
a 150 to 300 KB file (via "links.txt)" roughly every three (3) seconds from
a 24/7 live streaming site?
Relevant URL:
Bonus challenge: hear one (1) hour of working, unbroken sound from the Beeb
(BBC Radio 3 and her experimental FLAC stream) using wget.  (Note: the .m4s
file segments have a very short shelf life, i.e., < 10 mins).  It may be
closer to a < 5 min. shelf life.  I couldn't be sure, as I was too busy
clacking out my clunky command line(s).
P.S. - If you're on anything more modern than Windows XP or Vista, you can
simply plunk that .mpd URL into the latest VLC 3.0.0 nightly build, and VLC
will do all the work -- but that's no fun!
