I aggree with oddsock on this one. This is really very important to the
listeners. Take a net broadcast of a regular station, he'll only see
live as genre, and then he woulnd't know what's playing. Maybe the
station's description says it's a techno station, but he bumbs into a
speech-only program. Then he'll be disappointed in the station, even
though what really happened is that he bumped into a speech program.

It really seems, that you can not describe the contents and nature of a
stream with static data, as (fortunately enough) people always stream
something different.
