"The purpose of this document is to describe the process of using Linux based tools to setup a server used for streaming MP3 data. With a streaming MP3 server, a wad of MP3's, and a microphone a user can create their own internet radio show complete with snappy banter."

"For the server there are two choices that I considered: Nullsoft's Shoutcast and the GPL'ed Icecast. Both servers run under Linux, both servers can accept audio streams from a multitude of MP3 streamers, both servers were relatively easy to setup, but I chose to use Icecast...."

"For the MP3 streamer I chose to use Shout. Shout is also designed by the same group that created the Icecast streaming server. Although the Icecast team is no longer supporting Shout(in favor of their newer IceS), many of the available add-ons require that you have Shout installed."
