I already saw KEXP on the list. My first choice is the new 89.3 The Current, KCMP, Northfield, MN.

Minnesota Modern Rock with lots of diversity in music tossed in.

Also KCRW out of LA/Santa Monica with Morning Becomes Eclectic and other shows.

Maximum Rock and Roll! for an hour of kick ass punk rock a week.
The Current is a brand spanking new Minnesota anti-format radio station that isn't old enough to be trashed by commericals, the DJ's or farking techno.
Radio Kaos...need I say more?

97X - the future of rock and roll

best. station. evar.

Used to be out of Miami Unversity in Oxford, Ohio, but they sold the frequency to another company. it was one of the last independent radio stations in Ohio. *sniff*

They're internet-only now, which is better than nothing.

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.

Over the air radio sucks, I've found internet radio to be too nichey and in many cases just plain weird for my tastes.

For my ever changing tastes I've found these to be my best bets:

but I usually just listen to my own music at home but when I'm at work, I still stream my entire music collection using a little python script (easy to setup on windows machines too), called Edna:

Simple is good.

Did anyone here chime in already with WFMU, the grandaddy of indie freeform radio?
2005-03-11 07:38:12 AM  
1 vote: has MP3s of old time radio shows if you're into that. Buck Rogers, Abbot & Costello, Gunsmoke, etc.

Anyone know of online radio stations that have these old shows?

If you like industrial music, try Digital Gunfire.

Hood Rich Radio could give you some nice comic relief. Live shows Saturday nights (our time, eastern), and replays and best-of all week long.

Some good tunes, too.

As with many previous posters I'll have to stick up for SomaFM. I usually keep the Drone Zone stuff on while I do work on the computer.

If you're interested in a modern jazz station, or are into any sort of electronica, try Digitally Imported. I don't know why the two go together, but the jazz stream is one of my favorites.

Go to You can search by genre. The playists will open in iTunes. And best of all, you can record the streams using something like Radio Lover or Streamripper into little MP3s and it's 100% legal to do so.
