Thank you. Good detective work. The version with MP3 support is not in
backports, so I would have to compile from source. I'd rather defer
that exercise.

I did find this: I
used the ezstream setup. So far, a proof of concept installation is
hard at work on my laptop. That's farther than I've gotten before.

Now to copy the whole mess onto the final server and get that running
on my network.

Thanks to all who helped.
