Another program to look at would be Last Exit,

Playing streams shouldn't be too hard, as it is mostly the same
as normal streaming audio. From what I recall, the two main differences
are doing some login stuff to get the stream URL, and that it sends a
"SYNC" signal in band to indicate that updated stream info (track title
an artist) is available.

That would make sense to me, as they are done via http as with login.
