Not exactly what you're asking, but mod_mp3 works very well.

"This turns apache into your basic RIAA hating, but every college
student loving mp3 streaming server. It can play from a list of
files, either straight through or randomly. It can also be used
to cache mp3's into memory and have the server operate entirely
from memory. Enjoy, groove, mp3s not included."

Specifically, what you'd have to do is convert your CD collection to MP3,
and then you could set up as many streams as you wanted, and players like
winamp/xmms could then listen to those streams.

Conversion to mp3 would be a slight hassle, but it would allow you to keep
more than one cd on the system at a time, so it's a tradeoff.

mod_mp3 is in the ports.
