	thanks, i had not thought of Icecast as a way to stream the music.  i will have to check it out and see if it can work like a streaming player instead of just a radio feed.

	very cool, though there were a few broken links/empty pages for me:

- the "Dub Store" item links result in an empty page (e.g. http://www.ariwa.com/dubstore/collector/ari-192/ )
- the "Digital Store" item links all resulted in a "page not found" ending up at http://localhost/error.html
- "Sound Board" resulted in a few "decodeAudioData error undefined" popup alerts and the "loading Buffers" never finishing

however, the jPlayer "Prof Radio" was working.

	it looks like for most of the static tools i will have to at least do the styling/CSS and some JS, so thanks for the offer.
