[Icecast] tools for broadcasting

I am actually working on a prerecorded show set to debut 9/1/10

My plan was to create and edit the show with Audacity. The final mix would be encoded as an mp3. 

I was then going to use the edcast winamp plug-in to stream the mp3 show to my icecast server so others can listen. 

I was also planning a 30min filler mp3 so the feed was active and people can connect while the show is 'cued' up for broadcast.   This would be accomplished by setting an m3u playlist in winamp that first plays the filler followed by the show. Start winamp 30 minutes prior to show start and it should work just fine.

For those of you on the icecast list, can I have a recommendation on the right tool to broadcast with? If you like, I’ll send you my prerecorded shows, just tell me what the best way to send those is. For the audacity list now, would it be possible to develop a broadcasting tool for Audasity? I can see how it would mostly work, but there is one problem. How I see it working is that I start recording the broadcast, so I start talking, import the first set of songs, and then press play. Then, I would move the cursor to the end of the project and start recording my next talk segment. The only problem I see with this is that in Audasity, you can’t play and record at the same time. Well, you can, but the broadcast would be full of breaks when I switch inputs to record the songs from the player. To the icecast list, what do you recommend as a tool for broadcasting? The other problem with Edcast is that you can’t change the playlist unless you are on the mic unless you happen to have vision, which I do not, so my screen reader is going to come over the air, which I don’t want.
