I found a way from the ALSA wiki:

record sound that is playing from another application use the 'Mix' 
device as the capture device:

amixer set 'Mix' cap
Now you should be able to record what's currently playing through your 
soundcard with:

arecord -t wav -f cd test.wav
(Then I run the iPlayer in konqueror and ^C arecord when it's done.)

Get round that, Auntie's DRM-wonks ;-)

(Who's old^H^H^Hmature enough to remember when we used to hold the mic 
of our reel-to-reel (or if we were flash, cassette) recorder up to the 
speaker on the telly to record TOTP :-))
