It's very easy to do technically. I used a similar idea when I was on
dialup to broadcast internet radio. I sent my stream to a computer
with a decent connection and had it do the broadcasting. Basically you
create a private station on the dialup and have the computer with the
real bandwidth connect to it and run it's own server.

This is all very easy to do using icecast or shoutcast mp3 streaming
