I've thought about it briefly (I'm in the same boat as you, but I've 
been tinkering with making my own interface) and I more or less came to 
the conclusion that it was more complicated than it was worth, for me at 
least. For my purposes having spoken content recorded beforehand, 
uploaded, added to the playlist and played back a couple hours later was 
good enough.

What you might be able to do is set up two streams, one live and one off 
your playlist, each being a fallback for the other. Kill the live stream 
and dump listeners over to the live feed and when you're done 
broadcasting live you can turn the playlist back on, kill your live feed 
and dump everyone back. I'm not sure if this is feasible or not, I just 
remember thinking about it. I might have read about this approach around 
here, who knows.
