There are lots of free, open source streaming audio server solutions that you could install on a DigitalOcean server. A quick Googling produces:

In terms of bandwidth, here are some basic calculations on how much outgoing bandwidth would be used, based on number of listeners and bitrate of your audio: keep in mind, constant listener means streaming 24/7, 30 days per month!

. Streaming at 96kbps Streaming at 128kbps Streaming at 320kbps
1 constant listener 31GB monthly bandwidth 41.5GB mon. bandwidth 104GB mon. bandwidth
10 constant listeners 310GB monthly bandwidth 415GB mon. bandwidth 1.04TB mon. bandwidth ($5 droplet max)
100 constant listeners 3.10TB monthly bandwidth (~$20 droplet max) 4.15TB mon. bandwidth (~$40 droplet max) 10TB mon. bandwidth (crazy!)

This is referencing droplet transfer limits shown on pricing page
