Classic rock radio stations
I get so upset with commercial FM stations and the way they play the same songs. The only stations that play the other songs from an artist are the ones that are not on the corporate payroll. In the area where I live a company bought the majority of the stations and turned them into commercial music meat grinders. They play the “best country" and the "best new music" and the "best classic rock", over and over. They do not do this for the love of music but to maximize their profit. Only the independent stations play music for the enjoyment of it but sadly these stations are harder to find. I can sometimes get a whisper of these true music fans on my radio but it soon fades out as the commercial stations blast the airwaves.
The internet and satellite radio are the places to hear a variety of music that is reminiscent of days when FM radio was dominated by the DJ and not the paid voices that play what corporate tells them to.
