[Icecast] mp3 vs ogg question

How come the song data shows up faster with ogg when with mp3.

I ask this because the people who are using icecast to stream police scanners also made a system to send realtime updates to what channel people are listening to. With Ogg the title shows up about .5 of a second before the talking starts but with mp3 it's about 1-2 seconds after the talking starts.

Is there anyway to speed up the text on mp3 or are we just stuck with it?
