Your Favorite (primary) Radio Station

What is your PRIMARY (default) radio station you listen to in your car? I understand that most people like different music for different moods and different settings... that's why I picked the default for in the car for this poll.

(mine is 'Country' for almost all settings)

I can't stand most radio stations. Mostly what I have a problem with are the DJ's. I find most of them obnoxious. Radio is also way too commercial. The music I enjoy the most is rarely ever played on any radio station anyway. Because of this, my default radio station is NPR, but if I need music and I am not listening to a CD (rare) then I will listen to one of the local college stations.

Jack-fm. They don't have djs, they don't take requests, and when they do the station identification, they say things like "we play what we want", or "now we have to listen to commercials so we can get paid." They go from classic Van Halen to Prince to Old Aerosmith to the GooGoo dolls to Depeche Mode. Basically everything except country, rap and teeny-bopper pop. Best reason: they play no Britney or Christina.

I know what you mean... I listen until I can't take the ads or the DJ's any more. I listen to CD's quite a bit too... and I do check out NPR to see what the topic is... (I guess yours would be a vote for Talk Radio or Other then, huh?)

i switch back and forth between news radio (wcbs-fm, and wins-fm) for the traffic reports, and to wxrk for howard stern (sorry otter and norgeskog). but howard is soon to depart, so i'm considering sattelite radio.
so i guess i'm all talk...

That sounds pretty good J... I don't think they have anything like that here and I HAVE scanned the dial quite a few times.

"93.1 Jack FM - Finally a radio station for the people who ate paste when they were kids."

google jackfm and you will find the stream for the music. My computer has too many safeguards and I can't get it... :(

I can't stand commercial radio stations - the adverts just irritate me! I listen to BBC radio 4 - there are plays, debate, poetry - all different types of things I really find interesting.

If I want music, I play CDs!
