Icecast server.
 
I would like to set up a Icecast server here at the local radio station to stream audio over the internet to friends and such. My problem is that I don't have the greatest bandwidth 256Kbps connection during the day and double that at night. Let's say I have at the very least 10 people listening at one time at 24Kbps, there goes most of my upload bandwidth... Can I find someplace that serves Icecast for free or cheap?

Uses shoutcast, might not be suitable though, as it looks like you must reserve your timeslot well in advance.

I was thinking more in the direction of 24 hours, or at least during the day... This doesn't really fit the bill...
