Policies for streaming music?

I have a shoutcast station where we talk about different topics, and we interview listeners on the topics too (they can call in). However, whenever I'm not around I'm wanting to play music. I could play music under creative commons, but I'm also wanting some music outside of that. What kind of legal issues are there? Could I provide an option to buy the song? Right now I'm developing a small application that plays different songs from an xml playlist, and every 6 or 7 songs it plays an advertisement to help pay if I need to play to play the songs.

Would I need to contact the record companies (obviously that would be pretty unlikely if I need to contact record companies).

Thanks for any help!
