I haven't set up a site with a live stream, so the best I can do is offer a few links.

Here is the WordPress Codex page on Podcasts:
http://codex.wordpress.org/Podcasting

Here is a theme that offers full support for live streaming:

If you have a Qik account, you can use this plugin to integrate it into WordPress:

Maybe one will fit your need.

dolamitejenkins, with respects this doesnt have a simple answer.
zWhat is your experience levels?
Do you have a web page?
Is this radio ( voice ) only or including video as in a live video, what is your internet speed?
did you want interactive from the public or just for listening?
Is your web page PHP or SQL?
When entering this field copyrights is also something to consider. What media  content you wish to broadcast.
Shoutcast offers you all you need to setup your own radio station in your own web page. audio only or with video
all explained here with some tuturials as you requested below
