The Squid Project has a list of commercial providers offering Squid support.

You maybe able to find a local vendor in there. Or one of the other list
subscribers may be able to help

What you are asking for is relatively basic, so you may also be able to
just ask here and get the answers. Or find them in

Note that this SSL requirement may break WebSockets.

If the MP3 files are being transferred as ICY, RTMP, RSTP, or RTP
protocols they are not cacheable. Squid can only proxy audio using ICY,
FTP, gopher, or HTTP - with caching only available in the later 3 protocols.

Not relevant beynd those bugs I mentioned, which are fixed in
squid-3.4.5. The biggest problem will be lack of WebSockets client
software support for HTTP proxy CONNECT requests.
