What radio station do you listen to?

Question is as simple as it gets. What radio station do you listen to? This can be an internet radio station, a *gulp* pirate radio station, or a commercial or state radio station. You can post frequencies or URLs if you want. Pirate radio frequencies are not recommended!

I'll start. 90% of the time I listen to BBC Radio 2, available online here, and on 88 to 91 FM in the UK.

The other 10% is my local radio station, The Beach. Mostly for local school closures, and other local news, as well as the (sometimes) great music! This is on 103.4 FM and 97.4 FM, but only on the East Anglian coast in Suffolk, and partway in Norfolk. Their website is here.

Same as you, BBC Radio2 , usually on the way to work or Saturday mornings/afternoons.

Occasionally Classic FM if I want something a bit mellow.

On an evening sometimes I'll tune into local radio if I'm working in the garage or something, but this isn't really local any more as it's a syndicated show that's broadcast all over the UK with local advertising inserted at various intervals

Radio 1 in the morning, because Chris Moyles is just about annoying enough to get me out of bed (I used to listen to Radio 4, but I ended up getting interested and not actually leaving).

I don't really listen to net radio - I think podcasts are probably a better online radio model for the sort of way I'd want it to work, but then I haven't actually used one so I'm reserving judgement on the implementation.

I rarely listen to the radio but when i do i either listen to Radio One (which sucks(!) but you gotta listen to what the majority want) or Talksport (funniest radio station ever).

Radio 4's about the only station of any use. I'd like to swicth on Radio 2 but my wife's anti-classical (the legacy of a secondary education).

Woxy.com's a decent indie-orientated station, hailing from Ohio? Plays 50-50 old and new, which is nice.

I just constantly change station and stop when I hear a good song, simple as that.

mostly I listen to DI at work, but I'll occasionally tune into SomaFM or BlueMars

regular radio I tune into 88.9 Milwaukee Public School radio which plays classic jazz and has no commercials. I have no idea why MPS has a jazz station, maybe that's part of the reson the public schools around here are so screwed up... Oh well, the music is good.

In the morning, ESPN Radio.
From 11am-2pm, Lex and Terry on XM152.
From 2pm-days end, a blend of Philips Phile on XM152, Boneyard XM, and Squizz XM.
Squizz now has TFMS (The Fucking Metal Show) on Wednesday night. It rules!

There's nothing good on the radio so I don't own one, although my new phone has one built in.

Mine too. I learn more about politics going to and from band practices listening to Radio 4 than from anywhere else, now.
