Sampling "now playing" every 5 minutes seems to be useless. Perhaps get a "playlist" in advance from the server and show several upcoming broadcast items in advance?
Legally this cannot be done. Here is what the DMCA laws state on the subject:
3. Prior announcements not permitted. Advance song or artist playlists generally may not be published. However, a webcaster may name one or two artists to illustrate the type of music on a particular channel. DJ "teaser" announcements using artists' names are permitted, but only those that do not specify the time a song will be played.
