As for myself, I simply use hand generated RSS feeds and mp3 files on a
server. My students tend to use iTunes or Juice (open source). iTunes
isn't necessarily a 100% "accessible" (non-browser) software

circumstances. However, using the iTunes service is increasingly popular.
On the professional side, you might also want to have your tech staff
