If I may add a slight twist: we have a group interested in student-produced radio programming, but they want to stream it over the Internet rather than broadcast. Have any of you done this sort of thing? I suppose they could go with podcasting, but that is not really what they are looking for.
I sense all sorts of pitfalls and traps in the idea - so would appreciate feedback from this wonderful group.

At South Burlington, we purchase royalty-free music (meaning we pay for
it once and don't have to pay again for every use). Our SBNN broadcasts
sometimes go out over the local cable channel or are used for other
purposes, but I would think you would want to respect copyright anyway,
as part of what you are teaching the kids.
What I wonder about is our school "radio station," which isn't a radio
station at all, but a broadcast before school over the PA system. Aside
from being wildly obnoxious (the music, not me, I hope), I would be
interested in anyone's take on the playing of copyrighted music, often
from MP3 players, to large audiences (>1,000 people).

Subject: copyright and school news podcast
I checked out Lucie's post from earlier in the month, but the document
reads like a research report with no conclusion, and no guidance given.
We have just begun to have students find articles, edit copy, fact
check, and anchor for a newscast. This is a 'club' type project as
opposed to part of a class.
At the moment it is distributed only within the building for copyright
reasons. I would love to talk with people who have actually produced
student news for broadcast.
Some school (maybe S. Burlington) presented at Dynamic Landscapes in
Castleton a few years ago about their project, any update?
I think I have a good handle on what is allowed, but want to discuss it
a bit before we post anything on our website.
