Just add a static file url with your station id to the m3u file before 
the real stream url. Players will stream the id, and then advance to the
live url when it finishes.

eg:

listen.m3u contains:
http://station.co.uk/hello.ogg
http://station.co.uk:8000/stream-64.ogg

Newer versions of icecast can stream static files on demand, or you can
just use your regular webserver to serve the station id file.

Hope that helps,
