[icecast] Icecast / liveice quandry

I've been running classic icecast + liveice for some time now (several years)
without problems. A couple days ago, the station manager (NPR affiliate) came
to me and asked if we could 'inject' a static file into the stream. Basically
what he wants is for the client to first receive a static file (requesting
donations of course) and then on to the live stream (*not* intermittently).
I'm hoping this can be accomplished server-side with either icecast or
liveice; but haven't had any luck. Here's my working liveice config...
Look forward to suggestions/ideas.
