I've seen similar problems with the SHOUTcast iPhone app. When you "save" a station, most likely it's saving the station ID, which is a magic number used by the SHOUTcast database. If the station's server goes down, even for a brief moment, it gets assigned a new ID when it comes back up and contacts the SHOUTcast database.

Usually the symptom is that a saved station won't play with some sort of error like "URL not found", but it could just as easily play an entirely different station if the saved ID is now assigned to someone else's station.
