Number of listeners, way to log each item played

One other feature that although not required, is a HUGE bonus for my sponsors. Radio DJ reads a text file and places the number of listeners from that text file to each item played, and it's logged. It goes into MySQL, and this is a huge selling point as I generate monthly reports of not only when sponsor spots played, but also HOW many times it was heard. They love this.  I created a custom PHP program and compiled it to an exe program that reads the number of listeners and dumps this to a text file that RadioDJ uses. 

An example is attached. Any idea if PlayIt can do something like this, and log it as seen in my attached image?

Hello Rob,

This looks very neat but isn't a PlayIt Live function really.

You can read the number of listeners from a Shoutcast or Icecast server (by scraping the status page if nothing else) and PlayIt Live can generate a text file for each item played and put it somewhere (the "Now Playing" PlugIn does this)..

The two and a variant of your PHP should be able to do what you have shown.
