Well, a friend of a friend says you need to burn it was WAVs.  The sox(1)
manpage implies I should convert to .cdr format (i.e. sox foo.wav
foo.cdr) when burning to an audio CD, but that didn't work at all.
(Listening to it through the CD-ROM drive sounds like white noise.)
For now I might try different CDs and see if that helps.
