Automated Title Changes In ShoutCast

Okay, kids, here's the problem I'm having.

I'm using ShoutCast (and ickWinMedia) in a triple-server configuration.

Since I can't find a working log parsing for ShoutCast that will give me TSL/AQH/any other radio-friendly stat terminology, I've resorted to something else...

RadioToolbox has been fortunate enough to grant me a space on their online log beta testing service, and it's been great.

However, we're a live broadcast facility, and while we do use automation software, it doesn't interface directly with Winamp or Shoutcast (or any other webcasting standard, apparently). Thus, we can't have the jocks change the title of the song automatically.

We're block programmed by two or three-hour blocks, and since RadioToolBox's log parser displays the log graph with song separation, I'm really just looking to find something that will change the title/artist according to time, such as hourly or every two hours. This way, I can tell at a glance which blocks are underperforming or doing well.

Ideally, since we have sports broadcasts as well, I'd like to be able to manually set the title for those types of events as well.

Does anyone know of something that's already written that will do this? Or am I venturing on uncharted territory here?

Thanks,

TG
