Without getting too terribly technical the process runs in 3 phases. You need an encoder, a server, and a client. The encoder is responsible for sending for sending the audio feed to the server. The server is responsible for distributing the signal to clients and the clients are the listeners. The biggest stumbling block you will face is typically bandwidth for the server as this is where most of the costs for running a station will go.
