Christian radio:: Air 1

No commercials.
2005-03-11 10:39:05 AM  
I (insert incremental number here) Radio Paradise! That's my streaming solution everywhere- eclectic, smart, no commercials, even the promos are low key. I love how the playlist is available at the website, and actually am surprised that more stations don't use the same style!

You can get it straight off, in iTunes under Radio->Alt/Modern Rock, or through, or Shoutcast, too. They offer a stream for every speed & media player.

Oh, and KEXP Seattle in case no one has mentioned it already...
2005-03-11 10:41:01 AM  
KEXP. No need to look further.
2005-03-11 10:41:40 AM

WMMS out of Cleveland, Ohio. Its a Rock station.

Webjay is a great site that allows people to upload and stream playlists from WinAmp, Itunes, etc. Lots of variety.
2005-03-11 10:43:42 AM best underground alternative ever
2005-03-11 10:48:29 AM  
This is my friend's radio website.

gremlin radio
2005-03-11 10:51:24 AM is really good. Very few commercials and a good mix of all styles and decades. Their motto is "We play what we want" and they mean it.
2005-03-11 11:06:31 AM  
It's just a weekly radio show (about an hour long) but I'd reccommend it It's a German radio show out of San Francisco that plays a variety of music. I've gotten introduced to some really awesome stuff through that station, everything from a dark EBM to a cover of Johnny Cash's ring of fire done in bagpipes.
2005-03-11 11:10:10 AM  
I'll throw in another vote for KEXP... there's really no reason since I've seen it mentioned a thousand times in this thread. But now I've gone and done it. Seriously, no need to look any further.
2005-03-11 11:14:33 AM  
I would be so wrong if I didn't promote my sites, all streaming:

Rock 105 TAO - Active Rock

97.7 The Bear - Classic Rock

92.7 KISS FM - Top 40

107.3 W3D - Country

Just click on "listen live", it pops-up
2005-03-11 11:17:30 AM  
For all your underground hip-hop needs check out Heads Up Raw Radio or HURRadio. Operates out of MTL and is pumping out all the best hip hop has to offer 24/7

2005-03-11 11:18:12 AM

sorry no link goodness.
2005-03-11 11:18:24 AM  
2005-03-11 11:23:45 AM  
I'll second the first station to make the FM-to-Web jump. If you've seen 'Rainman,' you've heard of it. "97X. Bam! The FUture of ROCK 'n' roll."
2005-03-11 11:24:20 AM  
2005-03-11 11:24:38 AM  
Another vote for Air America Radio.

Also WRCT one of the best college radio stations ive ever heard.
2005-03-11 11:25:49 AM  
Indie 103.1 FM from here in Los Angeles is the best thing on traditional radio since early 80s KROQ. (Which means nothing to you unless you're local, but trust me that it's good. :)

They have an internet feed at:

...and yes they are THAT GOOD! Best station ever.
2005-03-11 11:26:05 AM  
I've not seen my favorite in the thread thusfar -

KINE - Hawaiian105FM (pops)

*The* Hawaiian station to listen to when you're on O'ahu, or just want to get some island time.
2005-03-11 11:30:06 AM  
Here is a great site with links of classical radio stations:

My favorite is Beethoven Radio.
2005-03-11 11:32:56 AM
It's the main Iowa public radio group. There's an NPR affiliate (the AM station), and a classical station (the FM station). I like the classical for when I'm working. Click on "Listen to WOI".
2005-03-11 11:35:54 AM  
99x Atlanta.

12-1 eastern Retroplex obscure 80's and old school punk

rest of the time 90's and new alternative. Pretty good station.
2005-03-11 11:36:11 AM  
2005-03-11 11:36:45 AM
he has bits and shows online, comedy, mixes it him self, throws stand up of a whole bunch of guys in there then plays some mellow music, definitly worth checking out if your into comedy
2005-03-11 11:41:54 AM

Teh Underground HipHop goodness.
2005-03-11 11:49:33 AM 'nuff said.
2005-03-11 11:49:56 AM  
Late Nite Ramen:

Radio KOL

Kingdom of Loathing radio. They'll play anything and everything.

I should also plug The Kingdom of Loathing while I'm at it. Excellent, excellent game.

I'll second Radio KOL. They have live DJs 24 hours, do requests, and play just about everything.
2005-03-11 11:54:37 AM  
i miss kbhr
2005-03-11 11:55:22 AM  
CJSW 90.9

University of Calgary radio station. DJs 24 hours a day and new genres pretty much every half hour.
2005-03-11 11:57:12 AM  
2005-03-11 11:58:03 AM  
I'll throw my vote behind BBC, but Radio One gets most of it. Check out the Blue Room with Chris Coco and Rob da Bank or Worldwide w/ Gilles Peterson. Great stuff!
2005-03-11 11:58:49 AM  
If you like progressive rock, I suggest Aural Moon.

You can always use Winamp, then select Library, then Internet Radio to have a huge selection of radio stations too, heh.
2005-03-11 12:00:05 PM
2005-03-11 12:00:34 PM

excellent, awesome intustrial/darkwave/gothic.
2005-03-11 12:01:08 PM

good stuff
2005-03-11 12:07:18 PM  
BeNOW - My play stream. Weird electronica.
CJSW - University of Calgary, diverse excellent university radio.
2005-03-11 12:08:43 PM

2005-03-11 12:10:01 PM  
I like little radio a lot. They have a nice mix of indie rock, from stuff from the 80's up to the new stuff.
2005-03-11 12:10:36 PM  
Didn't read all the posts in this thread, but KEXP out of Washington is by far the best in my book.
2005-03-11 12:11:08 PM

Jazz station out of Clark Atlanta University. The absolute best jazz station I've heard but I haven't heard them all thus my request:

Any other straight-ahead jazz stations streaming on the Internets? Come on Farkers help a brother out.

/sorry no linky goodness
//no HTML skills
2005-03-11 12:13:07 PM

streaming webcasts of a commercial radio station that is student run at the University of Illinois. doesnt play top 40, plays good music instead.
2005-03-11 12:14:01 PM  
Ok, here is the scoop... Radio in this country for the most part is owned by 2 or 3 companies...

You can listen to all the radio shows again, or live. BBC baby!!

I am a fan of Radio one, I like the dance stuff, however they have everything from R&B, rap, jazz, talk radio, comedy.

/British radio rulz
//American radio is garbage
2005-03-11 12:16:05 PM  
Free-format, non commercial FM - a little bit of *everything*
2005-03-11 12:17:27 PM  
If you're willing to pay $3.95/mo, XM Radio Online is the way to go. 65 channels of great music across a lot of different genres.
2005-03-11 12:20:31 PM  
Here is a link to XM Radio Online. You can sign up for the free 3-day trial mentioned earlier from that page. It's $3.99/mo, not $3.95/mo.

Here is a channel listing.
2005-03-11 12:30:34 PM

WCCR - Purdue College Radio

We rock.
2005-03-11 12:30:53 PM  
Phish Live(s)
2005-03-11 12:36:34 PM  
Everyone should be listening to VINCE SCELSA'S IDIOT's DELIGHT!
WFUV FM Fordam Radio Saturday Night
Sirius Radio 24 Sunday Night
Real free-form radio.

There's no place like home.
