Hi there guys... I've been watching the list for a while, had a quick
question.

I work for a company (Turtle Beach) that makes a product that takes MP3
files that reside on your PC or Network Attached Storage, and lets you play
them anywhere else in your home.  (From your stereo for example.)

Anyway, we've added basic MP3 streaming support (and have now gone to
external beta) that supports the Icecast format.  In my searches, I haven't
really come across a lot of stations that are running regularly (and that
could handle 25-30 listeners at a time regularly.)

Any thoughts on where I should be looking?

Thanks,

Seth

P.S. if you want to see the product I'm talking about, take a gander at
www.audiotron.net or www.turtle-radio.com which is the portal people can use
to setup their stations.
