I'm pretty sure you are not allowed to "steal" the content from anybody, i.e. from radio stations or other sites; they (must) have paid money to be able to play the content, but if you wanted to do the same (instead of just listening), you are probably expected to do the same and pay money to the copyright owners (record companies) and that way get their agreement for you to play the music. For the same reason you can't play it from your local directories: you can play it for yourself if you've paid for it, but broadcasting it to the others (public) means you would need to pay for that, again.

So..unless you start making your very own metal music to broadcast or are willing to pay (probably big sums of) money to the record companies, you can't do it.
