A more "Icecast" way of doing things may be to set up fallback mounts 
for that kind of goal. Not sure what kind of listener clients you have 
going to your server but this would be a sort of 'universal' method as 
they are all at least geared toward digesting audio and/or video, so why 
not alert them in that same context? If not, could you give some more 
detail to your setup?
