Creating batch file to play online stream at specific time

Hi All,

I listen to an online station at certain times of the day for their news coverage. Sometimes I'm away from the desk at the time of their extended news broadcasts and I would like to have a batch file that I could just click from my desktop which would play the broadcast when convenient for me.

For instance, for their 1pm newscast, the link would be as follows:


Is it possible to create a batch file that would:
  1. Create the link for the current date based on the system date of my computer? Specifically in the format shown in the link above?
  2. Have Winamp automatically play the link created?

Thanks for any potential suggestions.
