[icecast] Switch to static file when stream unavailable...

I've combed through the archives and can't really find an answer to this.
Essentially, I'm trying to set-up streaming for a college radio station.
There are several programs which are syndicated that we apparently can't
rebroadcast. The easiest thing that came to mind was setting up a cron job
to shut down liveice at the appropriate time, swap index pages on the web
server making the link to stream unavailable, then switch back and re-start
Instead of listeners who try to connect directly using a client during this
time getting a 404 error, I was hoping to get icecast to default to a static
mp3 when no encoder is connected. I've tried getting liveice to restart and
feed icecast a playlist of this one file, but, because it's so short (6
secs), I think, I get "error syncing mpeg" on winamp or connection time-outs
on xmms, most of the time... unless I restart liveice in curses mode which
seems to work for reasons unknown to me...
Any ideas? Thanks!
