I've just found out that you can control mplayer via a fifo file.
So to quit mplayer in a good way you could do the following:
1. Create a fifo somewhere:
   mkfifo mplayer_fifo

2. Start mplayer within your script like this:
mplayer -quiet <myradiostation> -input file=mplayer_fifo

3. Write this into your stop script:
echo quit >mplayer_fifo
