What Is Your Favorite Radio Station?

Postby Traden » Fri Mar 19, 2021 11:31 am

A place to share what radio stations you reccomend. Mine is 93.9. Basically, it's a 90's station.

88.1 FM is jazz. I usually use YouTube Music or Spotify, but 88.1 is what I use on the radio.

I don't actually listen to radio that much but if I had to chose from the ones I heard then it would probably Europa FM.

Whichever station I happen to be working for at that particular moment. :p

Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

I used to do spotify and apple music but then I got an older car that what I had before so I had to go back to radio because the "clear" stations that you can use kind of suck. But, I like 94.4 which is the "oldies station" or just scan until I find a good song. Haha

93.1 FM when I lived in the States. I liked the rock and 80s stuff. I think they changed the frequency now.

Vancouver's CBC (88.1) is arguably the best in the whole country. Great hosts with unique content and zero ads. For music, 102.7 (The Peak) is my go to.

That's my main station. KJZZ in Long Beach. The only jazz station in a city of 9 million people, ostensibly a cultural mecca.

Furthermore, these sites also give listeners the option to mute and cut the ads that play ecouter la radio during the live broadcast. Most listeners like to cut back on ads so they don't miss anything. In addition, many stations also broadcast advertisements at the beginning and end of each program.

WKZG (104.3 FM) in my area used to be amazing before they turned into a bland adult contemporary station in early 2019. They used to play all kinds of cool 80s and 90s hits you wouldn't hear elsewhere. Now they for the most part stick to a small playlist, alternate between pre-2000 and post-2000 songs, and even got rid of their all-80s weekends.

I'd say WYDR (94.3 FM) is the best station in my area now, considering it has certainly the biggest playlist of them all, with songs as old as 1963 and as new as 2017. Note, however, the inclusion of songs as recent as 2017, which means I do often find myself having to change the station when something trashy like "Moves Like Jagger" or that stupid "Thunder" song comes on.

Edit: cool, my 1300th post was about radio stations! I've hit milestones with worse posts.

"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

Depending on what's on, I like BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 3 the most. I don't have a lot of time for the big commercial radio stations because after a while you realise they play the same stuff over and over again, but I do like listening to Manx radio stations when my car radio picks them up, because I can imagine all of the references to THE ISLAND are part of some kind of Lovecraftian horror.

For FM I filp flop between 88.1 KJazz and 93.1 Jack. For AM I'm usually tuned into KNX 1070 cause they do traffic on the 5s.

Time to time.
And sank into the pool's mire.
They also smelt a great deal.

If I needed to have a favourite? Radio 3 here, Deutero Programma in Greece, Radyo 3 (if I've gotten the state-owned classical station right) or whatever the English-language station is (there are a lot of them and they all have the same super-limited playlist; luv u, Karnaval) in Türkiye. Really, I'll be happy with most things, as I have been since I discovered music more than forty years ago.

Sorry that I had to check my previous post on BBC Radio 4 being my favourite station, but yes I can confirm that Radio 4 was my favourite radio station until the Salisbury poisoning incident in 2018, along with a barrage of Brexit talk, caused me to radically cut back on news consumption.

Most memorable radio station? "Music Power, 95.8 Capital FM!" Now reduced to a cookie-cutter commercial radio station with scant local coverage.

101.7 Suaragama FM, broadcasting from Universitas Gadjah Mada Yogyakarta, hence the name Suaragama. They play both local and trending songs, as well as having ads for obscure places (at least for me), and for having their "track of the week" currently being That's Now How This Works by Charlie Puth that hasn't changed in more than 20 days.

Their slogan is The soundtrack of your life.
