Hi Chris,

I'm unable to find a specific application for what you have asked for,
however, some variation of:

$ while true; do arecord -d86400 | lame - PunkRockRadio-`date
+%d-%b-%Y`.mp3 ; done

This will create recordings of 24 hours long like:

So if this is scheduled to run at midnight, it will do it's job. 
Obviously you'd want a better script than this, but just as sound idea. 
This could then be served via samba (network drive), and/or served as a
http directory listing.

Hope this is some pointer in the right direction :)

Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
