      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Favorite Streaming Radio Stations?

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit slow on the technology thingy here, but I just discovered that I can listen to KEXP Seattle on itunes. SO I'm rockin out to the blues hour in sunny slc on this sunday morning.

 

What are some really good radio stations?

 

Also, does anyone really like alt country/rock/blues -i.e. rock with a lil bit of honky-tonk? (Gram Parsons, Stones, Dylan, Knopfler, Krauss, Bragg, Springstien, Ryan Adams , etc..?) Because I need some new suggestions.

KCRW - the best radio station I've ever found. I haven't lived in LA for 8 years, but I still stream that station regularly.

 

Isn't that just a regular NPR station?

WERS is one of the best -- if for nothing else but the reggae show weekdays 4-7. :moondance:

 

The iTunes streaming radio feature is an oft overlooked goldmine. :tup:

NO - check out the Morning Becomes Eclectic show and Metropolis (Jason Bentley) for awesome music (IMHO)...there are a lot of shows (music, political and otherwise) that are unique to KCRW. You won't find them anyplace else. Plus they have all the great NPR progs. that aren't on every public station like This American Life.

KMBT

 

Combat Music Radio: Your source for bloodsport inspired/inspiring music and commentary. "Return to Zero" and "Obdurate Ground", among others, offer forth an eclectic blend of folk, funk, punk, 70s Art Rock, and Death Metal, while Eugene S. Robinson, author of "Fight: Or, Everything You Wanted To Know About Ass Kicking But Were Afraid to Get Your Ass Kicked For Asking" dishes out his acerbic Mixed Martial Arts and Boxing news and commentary.

Triple J outta Australia, WFMU Boston (like KEXP) and KBCS all come to mind. My favorite podcast of something that doesn't run on KUOW is Le Show, hosted my Harry Shearer. Dry as a bone!!! :grin:

I agree, I never lived in LA, found it on accident and have stayed tuned ever since. It's a fantastic station with great degree of variety and DJ's... That fact it plays "NPR news" matters little. "Chocolate City" is one of my favorite programs, but many of the other shows are really excellent. IMO! ;)
