If you can find a friendly geek to write a script for you, this could be done 
by using mplayer (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/) to convert from ra to wav, then  
oggenc to encode the wavs to ogg. I'm using linux not OS X, so probably not 
the best person to ask.

Please don't send me html mail or un-notified attachments. These will be 
automatically filed under 'probable spam' unless I'm expecting an email which 
hasn't come.
If you do need to send an attachment or html mail, put [attachment] or [html] 
in the subject line.
Thanks, andy.
