Hey, get a hold of me: pafriedl(at) I'm dangerous with php, surgical with ASP

The php DB shouldn't be a problem at all. One thing I forgot to mention was that part of the XML playlist is a flag "isAdvertisement". That flag when true locks the player controls so that you only have stop, play, and pause. Evil, yes, but it makes sure that the advertiser gets the air time they paid for.

The rest of the playlist generation would be all server side to manage when/what songs get put in the list. You could have the most voted songs added, and probably throw in some frequency modifiers for when to add a lower rated song, ad, etc.
