WMA to MP3

So, hypothetically speaking, how would you convert a .wma file to a .mp3 file?

Like if you were, say, using a Mac Powerbook running OSX Tiger, and using iTunes 6.0.1?

According to the Apple site, "In iTunes for Windows, you can convert your unprotected WMA files to AAC files (or whatever file format is chosen in the Importing pane of iTunes Preferences) without changing the original WMA file. Simply drag the WMA files into your library in iTunes and iTunes does the grunt work, converting them for you. Windows Media Player 9 or later must be installed to convert unprotected WMA files. Protected WMA files cannot be converted." I, however, am not using iTunes for Windows.

I tried going to the Apple store to see if I could buy these three songs.
They flat out didn't have the first one.
The second one they had, but only the 'clean' version, and I want the 'explicit' version, dammit! (because really, how do you clean up lyrics like "I wanna do you, I wanna screw you up, I wanna fuck fuck fuck, On this hot night! ??")
The third one they had, but only as part of an album, you couldn't buy it separately.
