If you're streaming a live broadcast, you don't have song titles, as the
mp3 or ogg stream is generated real time from a sound card input. There
are two ways of letting the client know what he's listening to:
1. put meta-data into the mp3/ogg stream itself
2. let icecast send the metadata to the client or some directory service
