Good, that makes more sense. Then you should be able to run it
however you like.

Extra space after the & won't make any difference.

Oh no, not at all. Run "ps" (or maybe "ps auxww") to find its PID.
Then you can kill it with "kill PID". If you started it manually from
a terminal, then "fg" will put it back into the foreground where you
can kill it with Ctrl-C. (If you have multiple background jobs, run
"jobs" and "fg %n" where n is the job number.)

But check the Shoutcast docs for how it expects to be shut down.
Kill is not always the most graceful way to terminate a process.

Rebooting is surely not necessary. About the only thing that really
requires rebooting is installing a new kernel.
