I meant to send the message to the list but the default is to reply to the 
sender, which I find a big hassle.  I know, I should being using a proper 
email client and not Outlook Express.

This syntax is supported but it only shows up on the Icecast2 server web
pages, not on the listeners player, as far as I know.

I asked about this a week or 2 ago.  I would like this to work as well.
Oddsock wrote that there is no standard way to interject the metadata into
the stream at the server end.

Shoutcast can do it for mp3 streams.  It would be very nice if Icecast2
could do this for at least Ogg Vorbis streams by inserting a tag frame
between the audio frames.
