Player for radio station live stream.
Currently we trigger our WMP stream with a .wvx file that opens WMP, plays a brief audio intro file, then plays a :30 TV spot, then brings up the audio of the radio station, and displays HTML with logo/banner and links during stream within the player.
Here is example:

We're looking for a visually attractive and better branded way to do this, and also display dynamically display "now playing" info and a "buy now" link within the player. This metadata (song, artist, buy cd URL) would be accessed from a constantly changing text file on the server. Maybe use a small flash movie to do this, making sure to do cachebusting in the actionscript? Open to suggestions.
This could be a small popup HTML "player" with embedded WMP, or some fancy customization of the standalone WMP player. Main problem we have with embedded WMP approach is that it is frustrated by popup blockers. Open to suggestions on this issue.
Must be visually attractive, consistent with look and feel of main website at KDFC.com. Would like to include a 468x60 advertiser banner and link. Note: we will not always have an opening video or animation.
