I think that is legal, as long as you aren't making any money off the site by playing other people's music there.

Yeah non-profit sites are exempt. Although it is a fine line still. My brother had to get permission to use a band's music in one of his films for school because he entered it in a film festival. So just as long as it is not a commercial site you are fine.
