This might be a workable alternative, but it sounds like I would have  
to have a connection to the remote radio station all the time, even  
when I'm not actively relaying it. I have to pay for bandwidth  
overages at my hosting center, so it would be better if I could avoid  
streaming from the other station needlessly. It sounds like  
LiquidSoap may be the way to go for me. I'm going to check it out today.
