ok, i have installed festival, which is great, if i do

echo "hello"|festival --tts
my pc says hello to me (lovelly little login messages here we come!)

But what i would really love, is mplayer (command line) to say the name of the song it is about to play.

So either, is there a way to put a script in mplayer to do a command everytime a song is played, or else to ask mplayer what it is playing?
