You need software (SAM, Winamp, or another) that will allow you to create playlists and encode a stream to play in SL.  Streams are available for rent in SL at a wide variety of prices.  Shoutcast and Icecast are two examples. You can enter those words in search, go to their inworld shops, and read the information on streams.  A SAM license (which I use) costs about USD295 to get.  Winamp is free if you use windows.

If you are very new at this, you should look for some inworld training.  I was trained inworld and have been a DJ in SL for three years.  It is lots of fun!

Search on 'learn to DJ' and see what comes up.  Be aware that, depending upon what type of music you play, you may be required to use a mic.  Good luck!

You must also ensure you have public-performance rights for any music you play, including submitting the relevant royalties to the artists involved (Ha! I bet there aren't half a dozen 'DJs' in SL that do, but it is a legal requirement - just not likely to be enforced)

The important thing is this "the licensing obligation falls on the website from which music is made available" - if you're streaming, that's you. If you're using a streaming-host or SL to the music available it means the host or LL. How happy do you think they'll be if they get a bill/summons because of your activity? Lol. SOMEONE has to pay and you can be damn sure they won't.
