I make no secret of loving college radio - the first thing I did when I moved back in with my parents and then again when I moved out here was to find stations comparable to http://kxua.uark.edu/ (88.3 FM). I love (even if it's frustrating) to listen to songs I've never heard before of all sorts of hipstery college-kid styles.

Currently, I'm on Loyola Marymount's http://www.kxlu.com/ (88.9 FM)


Do you still haunt the analog dials?

I can actually grab WXPN (Public radio hosted at UPenn) http://www.xpn.org/ where I live, so I listen to that a good bit. They have a blues show every Saturday night that is great. They also will broadcast live concerts in Philly from time to time. I have found out about a lot of good acts through it.

If I'm not listening to that, there are a few good classic rock stations I swap between. I only really listen to the radio in my car though.

When I was working summer jobs in between my university semesters, a radio station opened in Vermont at 99.9 on the FM dial. It was called The Buzz, and it played (and still plays) alternative rock, which was a genre I was big into at the time. The best thing about it, though, was that for the first few months of its existence, it didn't have any DJs. They would just play music for 30 minutes, then play ads for however long radio station ad breaks are, then bam! music again. Considering that this was years before satellite radio was commonplace, it won a place in my heart that no radio station before or since has owned. Of course, after a while they finally got around to hiring some DJs, which made that station as unlistenable as any other commercial rock radio station, so the shine wore off. Man, pop radio DJs are just the worst things.

I used to host a show for KSCR, which is now KXSC (http://kxsc.org/). They had a really good t-shirt that semester. I lost it, unfortunately.

I actually started listening to KXUA because I was living totally by myself(not even a cat) with almost all of my friends out of town for the first time in my life and I was incredibly lonely. Having human voices really helped

I listen to KSPC (http://www.kspc.org) 88.7 FM, which comes out of Claremont, CA.

I was going through the dial one Friday afternoon commute when I heard the water palace theme from Secret of Mana. After overcoming my disbelief, I learned the Video Game Music Show airs every Friday evening. They also have shows on rap, jazz and some underground music I'm not savvy enough to identify. Doesn't help that most of the shows don't specify what kind of underground music they play.

I hate all Radio that's not Tyrant Radio.

I am applying to work at KLSU, the LSU radio station. Welcome to The Arcade! (http://www.klsuradio.fm/the-arcade/) I know the person who runs it, and I intend to be mentored by him!

I started listening to this when KXLU is playing a ball game or excessive amounts of classical music! I really like how it's more house/edgy.

There's a sort of odd feeling about listening to radio, for me, which is a feeling of being part of an audience. Knowing there are other people listening, even if I never see or hear or speak to those people, gives radio a sense of community that listening to music on CDs or my mp3 player just doesn't have. I feel less alone when the radio's on.

Sadly, there aren't a lot of radio stations in my area that I like very much.
