I've succeeded in downloading from that webpage (and I'm listening to it
1) Try looking at the values for variable `w3m-content-type-alist'.
2) When POINT is on the download link, try M-x w3m-download, I think.
The reason that I'm not totally sure anymore is ... (shameless
promotion follows) ...
I have for a few years now a PR#27 for an advanced emacs-w3m
downloader that works great and has no problem with mp3's. It also
has many other features including resuming interrupted downloads,
pausing, queueing, bulk selection, and a pretty nifty progress view
Andres Ramirez and maybe others have reported successfully using it
by copying my file w3m-download.el and I think making just very minor
My fork with all my changes are here
3) Uggh. Misleading advertising. The download isn't playing blues, just
1950's pop xmas vocal classics.
