If by on demand you mean being able to click on a file and have it play 
from the beginning at any time, then you don't even need Icecast for this.

If you have a webserver, you can place it on your website somewhere, and 
put a link to a file with a .m3u extension that contains the URL to the MP3 
file.  Then when someone clicks on the link to the .M3U file, it will 
download, open the user's preferred MP3 player and begin streaming the MP3 

Of course, you can do this with Icecast as well, using the fileserve 

Let me know  if this is not what you meant.
