I often tune into a non-authorized stream from WFHB, a community radio station that inherited the ellpees and some of the staff of a cable station I once deejayed at as a yout.

It offers a pleasant combination of unpredictable track selection and the amusing public service announcements one might expect from a college-town alternative public radio station ("Don't miss the weekly community drum-circle this Friday night!"), among other attractions.

What's buffering to your HD?

geez, there are sooooo many at this point. A couple of dozen on my preset list alone. Broadly speaking, what are some of your musical tendencies?

The ever enjoyable radio paradise is a staple on my PC, although lately I've been inter-tuning into BBC Scotland's Iain Anderson during the week and Janice Forsyth on the weekends for something different.

If you wanna clue into the incredibly vibrant euro mix scene, http://www.freshlymixed.com is rather amazing, even accounting for their decision to employ evil RealAudio streams.

I love SomaFM. It's been my favorite since the day I first discovered it.

I mourned the passing of drylongso too. I still miss it. It was my first online radio love, and it was the most wonderful music to listen to while cooking a long and involved Sunday dinner, the kind of dinner that you have to start early Sunday afternoon.

KUSF has its moments.

A couple of the streams at Magnatune are pretty decent.

WMMT - mountain community radio from Whitesburg, Ky. Quite possibly the most eclectic public radio station in existence. See my post here.

Fupped: my musical tendencies are not so important, in t his context. It's yours that I'm interested in!

I think this has been very interesting: we break into either tres modren blippity-whoosh or mumbletwang camps, it seems. Red MeFi, Blue MeFi?

If your tastes lean to jazz and blues with a New Orelans bent, WWOZ is an excellent source.
