I had a need this morning to see what was going on with
a particular news story this morning, but still wanted to
listen to music. So, it got me thinking...

Can the squeezebox play a song (or playlist), but scroll
through an xml feed from a web site while doing so?

absolutely. play a song, then navigate to plugins->RSS News. scroll
through the items you've set at your own pace, line by line.

If you want that behavior permanently, you could also set the "screensaver to use while playing" setting (under player settings) to the RSS feed.
