Download mp3 files from a webpage with Wget

Run:

$ wget -c -A '*.mp3' -r -l 1 -nd [URL]

From Wget’s manual:

-c: continue getting a partially-downloaded file. This is useful when you want 
    to finish up a download started by a previous instance of Wget, or by another program.
-A: Specify comma-separated lists of file name suffixes or patterns to accept 
    or reject. -A '*.mp3' only accepts mp3 files.
-r: retrieve recursively.
-l : Specify recursion maximum depth level depth. -l 1 only download files
    directly from the specify URL.
-nd: Do not create a hierarchy of directories when retrieving recursively. With
    this option turned on, all files will get saved to the current directory.

To display the manual in the terminal run $ man wget.
