Query for currently playing track by station id?

What is the best method for querying the currently playing track by station id? Is there public access to this information from a server?

It appears the SHOUTcast API doesn't expose such a query--you can search for songs or genres and reveal the stations that are playing that song, but you cannot do the reverse from what I read.

I understand that not every station actually shares this information or they hijack that feed for advertising, but many do list it. I've contemplated parsing the /7.html from a server address but appears that support for that page is deprecated. I need a JavaScript solution.

Thanks for any info.
