1.) Someone with radio equipment sets up a pirate station
2.) Same person has a website and announces "At 10:17 PM on <date> I will be broadcasting on 92.7 for exactly 4 minutes."
3.) Users wanting to receive set their "browser" to scan mode on the selected channel a few minutes before broadcast time
4.) When the broadcast gets sent out, users receive the info from header to footer
5.) Message is rebroadcast a few times during the 4 minutes to ensure people can pick up late
This way, the sender doesn't need to occupy the FM channel for long, yet can still get the message out. The rebroadcasting ensures that if people miss part of the file for whatever reason, or if they are not there from the beginning, they can still get it.

But if you're going to download the song anyways, why not just record it normally? =P
