Hello Kevin and listers,

    Will the same work with Windows Media Player? Let's see what others
suggest as we do not use Winamp. I'll be doing a stream capture so don't
want to install anything until the weekend is over to minimize the
possibility of technical glitches.

When you're not broadcasting live, just run a second winamp and have it play
a bunchof audio. This will automatically dump into the stream. When you're
ready to broadcast, just dump that winamp, pot up your voice, and you're
golden. Hope that helps.
