No, its not possible, besides the audio quality is horrible on the MP3's 
that you get.  You used to be able to rip them under Windows with 
Pandora's Jar, but the last time I checked (almost 18 months ago) the Jar 
was not working with Flash 9.

Ripping under Linux, thou, not possible.  You can rip with streamripper 
and lastfmproxy, but you wind up polluting your account doing 
that.  I recommend doing that on a dummy account.
