That is the proper way to do it.  Keep the audio production separate to the
broadcast.  The challenge will be updating the playing now details.  It
should be possible but others will need to help you out with that.  To plug
my own radio automation/live assist software, StationPlaylist Studio
(Windows only) can output the current playing file to a text file in any
format you like (text, xml, html) which could be read by some process on the
PC encoding the stream.
