You could try guesstimating where in the file you want to chop it, and then
just do exactly that - open it in a hex editor and brutally slice the bit
you want out! You will loose the header, but the file will still play.

I tried this using UltraEdit (Windows) - selected the second half of a 20
meg file, saved the selection as a new file with the .mp3 extension, and
Winamp played it no probs.
Not very elegant, but it works....
