Icecast is a streaming server for running internet radio stations. It 
uses open standards for streaming (http) and so it is straightforward 
for users (or players) to download or save the stream as it plays.

There is no techincal way to prevent users from doing that in any 
system, of course, it's just that some software tries to make it 

If "Coast to Coast AM" is using that sort of software, icecast can't 
help you. It's a supply-side application.

Good luck,
