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[1] 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
   changes afterwards.

   My fork with all my changes are here[2]

3) Uggh. Misleading advertising. The download isn't playing blues, just
   1950's pop xmas vocal classics.
