One possibility is using a local relay,  have your listeners connect to
a relay (say /live.ogg) which relays one of the DJs streams.  Then
switching DJs involves moving the relay listener part from one DJ
mountpoint to another.

Whether you use an always connected streaming playlist as a fallback to
use between DJs connecting is up to you.
