Apache won't itself per se, but it's no trouble to have an Apache based web
site point to a streaming feed running on the same (or a separate) computer.
I'm doing that at home where I have an Apache server on one computer and
Windows Media Encoder on a separate computer streaming audio from a radio
scanner of several local fire department radio channels.  If you wish to see
this, you can see it at

Broadcasting is not really the right way to describe it, but a music file is
just another file.  Apache will respond with a music file if that's what a
link points to.  Although this link below is on my Earthlink (not Apache)
website, you can see how this works at
The concept works just as well on an Apache site.
BTW, I will point out that copyright laws apply to almost any song, so if you
do not own the rights to the that song, it would be illegal to make it
publically available.
