May I kindly and humbly suggest that people posting on LAU as links to
'straight' mp3 files also provide a link to a file in OGG format?
IMHO it makes sense given the nature of the list and the better
experience for readers/listeners and it only really takes very little
effort [1]

Lorenzo.

[1] Example using oggenc (in the vorbis-tools package on debian-based
distros).
If you have the original wave file (better):

oggenc -q 9 my_file.wav #will create my_file.ogg use -o option to
save to another file. See man oggenc for many more options

If you only have an mp3 version (also requires lame):

FILE=my_file; lame --decode $FILE.mp3 /tmp/$FILE.wav && oggenc -q 9
/tmp/$FILE.wav -o ./$FILE.ogg
# replace my_file at the beginning with the filename of the mp3 file
withut extension
# could be done without the temporary wave file through raw pipes but
one must know sampling rate, bitrate and channels of the file
