do you guys still listen to the radio? - Page 3
Dozens of comparable commercial-free niche stations on Bell Satellite Galaxie as well.
XM Satellite OK too, in the car. Sometimes in the wee A.M. hours, I slip over to AM radio and listen to "Coast to coast" with George Noory. Way too many intrusive commercials on this broadcast though. Such a shame with the more bizarre guests.
I still listen to talk radio...usually Adam Corolla for a bit, then switch to Howard Stern on Sirius then back to the free radio for a couple afternoon shows, then back to Sirius for some tunes
I like a lot of the sports talk - we had 3 1/2 sports talk channels back in Tampa Bay, but only one up here in Tallahassee. They unfortunately carry Dan Sileo in the morning, but then it's Rome and the local guy is actually the best local guy I've ever heard. He's great.
Not that anyone cares
But I hate Dan Sileo with the radiance of a thousands suns.
Heh, every once in awhile I would try to listen to him for a few minutes (usually the morning after a Bucs win), but I just couldn't take it. Absolutely horrible.
He sounds exactly like what he is - an unintelligent, ex-mediocre jock. His speech sounds like a mongoloid fourth-grader trying to impersonate William Shatner. He's breathtakingly ignorant. He seems to do absolutely no research at all for his show. His arguments are so stupid and full of holes. When he's flailing due to ignorance or a caller destroying his argument, he either hangs up or suddenly decides that something's racist. "You want to talk about the effectiveness of the two-gap defense? What's that? Er...I mean, it's racist. Don't deny it, it is. So, about Barry Bonds....".
So glad this asshole got fired again. Maybe this will be the last time.
Driving in a city, I listen to NPR. In Chicago, WXRT or The Drive for some nostalgia...In Austin, TX, KGSR (Texas music mostly) and WKUT (campus radio). But during the day at work, looking for some good line radio stations (free)...been digging on this one lately for the mornings: http://www.ledjamradio.com/
I used to listen to the radio when I first woke up because my computer isn't in my bedroom. I had to stop though because I moved and for some reason I can't get it to work without static everywhere. I just gave up and used the buzzer. I used to listen to an adult alternative station (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, etc) though!
Radio in the morning used to be the only way I could face the day. Now I don't have a radio in my apartment, so I only have internet radio. Really miss morning shows and of course music...nothing like music in the morning to set the tone for the day... Looking for good internet radio suggestions... Will try somafm.com, thanks Harvey.
