Delete original wav file if lame was successful encoding.

In a bash script:

Code:
src=”cooltrack.wav”
dst=”cooltrack.mp3”

lame $src $dst

I would like to add some line that would delete the source wav file like:
Code:
rm $src

but I would like this only if the encoding was successful.
What should I include before deleting the original to check that the encoding with lame went alright?

Code:
lame $src $dst && rm -frv $src || echo "$src encoding failed"
