Icecast is a streaming media (audio/video) server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus, WebM and MP3 streams.
It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox and many things in between.

Darkice is a simple command-line streamer that takes audio input from jack or alsa input and streams it in Ogg Vorbis to icecast server.

Both are easy to install on Debian via apt (icecast2 & darkice)

DarkIce can record from:
Solaris audio interface
uLaw audio input through a serial interface
CoreAudio (branch darkice-macosx)

DarkIce can encode in the following formats:
MP3 - using the lame library
MP2 - using the twolame library
Ogg Vorbis
AAC LC - using the faac library
AAC HEv2 - using libaacplus library
Opus - using Xiph's libopus library
Vorbis - using Xiph's libvorbis library
