I like icecast, it's stable and does whatever you tell it too. *I* Use 
IceGenerator to feed media files to icecast, but it is a hands off 
streamer, just feed it a playlist and forget about it; VLC can be used 
as well, and with VLC, it should be easy enough to interrupt the music 
to interject Live Mic Broadcasts to IceCast then resuming music playing 
on demand. Since the Live BCs will require pausing the stream, it makes 
it nice because when you're not wanting to sit and play Radio DJ, you 
can just let VLC feed Icecast music until you're ready to resume Live 
BCing the next day/week/year/etc. See:

Provides info regarding making VLC talk to icecast.
