QotD: They Play My Jams

What's your favorite radio station, past or present?

Ooo, that's an easy one! WYEP 91.3 in Pittsburgh – a wonderful independent public station that plays a great mix of music, and supports the community and the local music scene in a big way. They stream online too, so check it out!

Here's a sample playlist (7:00am hour the other day) [the 3 with the same title are part of the "name remains the same" feature they do every morning – fun!]. I don't think you get this kind of variety anywhere on commercial radio…
