Actually if you have cable or dsl internet there is no real need to pay for shoutcast hosting. The shoutcast server program is quite easy to set up on any windows computer.
I run a radio station myself and run the broadcaster and shoutcast server on a computer at home. The computer is a Dell Optiplex with a PIII 933 and 256mb of Ram.
I run the SpatialAudio SAM2 Broadcaster and Shoutcast Server along with the Mysql Server the SAM2 needs all on that one computer. The SAM2 also includes a php website that is pretty easy to set up that allows automatic requests.
I generally run my station 24 hours a day and have had as many as 20 listeners on at 1 time with no problems. I'm not sure how it would work with more listeners. For a station just starting up though it can save quite a bit of money not having to pay for shoutcast hosting.
