That is correct. However, keep in mind that the license does accordingly state that a copy of the license or a URL to the license text must be provided to the end-user and a notice of the copyright by the author must be intact with the work (if you are performing the music). How the former would be technologically feasible, I am not entirely sure (in-stream meta data may be a possibility). But if you wanted to go by the letter of the creative commons license, you would need to devise a way for to maintain and provide such information.

Also keep in mind that you must not receive any monies in association with the performance of the work, this would include subscription payments for reception of your broadcast by listeners. Donations would appear not to be exempt. While not intended primarily for commercial advantage, they are nonetheless monetary compensation.

Hope this helps,
