Actionscript scrolling marquee that loads text from .txt file

Site is for an online radio station, and the client wants to have a "Now Playing" box.  The program that handles the music stream ftp's a .txt file containing the name of the song currently being played to the server hosting the site.

I would to have a dynamic text field load this info from the .txt file.  However the space I have for the box in the layout is small, smaller probably than most of the song names.  So I need this box to have a scrolling marquee action.  I like the solution provided in the answer to this previous question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/Flash/Q_20535066.html

But the solution does not dynamically load text from a file, and it seems to need to know exactly how many characters are to be displayed in the text box to work correctly.  I'm hoping someone can help me adapt this solution to my purposes.  I really like the actionscript option over using masks and just making the text box move.

Thanks in advance for your help,
