Hi all,

Sorry for the long absence from the forum!

I just got an internet radio and am looking for good radio stations that play cool, funky or obscure music, 60's, 70's, folk, antifolk, rock, blues, stuff like that. I just started listening to BBC2, heard some good stuff on there already. I also want to try WFMU, which Jeffrey references in "Cult Boyfriend".

Does anyone know any good stations they can recommend? If you could also include the geographic location that would help me to find them on the website that works with my radio (wifiradiofrontier).

I don't quite know how to describe my music style, besides Jeffrey Lewis of course I like stuff like The Kinks, Bob Dylan, The Moldy Peaches, Neutral Milk Hotel, AJJ, Nana Grizol... Smile

Thanks a lot in advance!

Christian

I like BBC 6 Music here in the UK, they play a great mix of things in shows all day. I also listen to a lot of news based radio, the BBC are best at that too. I've never got into a proper alternative station but I listen to podcasts with my favorite artists being interviewed and find some real gems doing that which I would never usually find another way. x

BBC6 does seem really cool, I remember listening to it on the radio at somebody's house in the UK and I was impressed and surprised by the songs that were coming on.
The only internet radio station that I have regularly listened to is the Technicolor Web Of Sound, which is a 60s psychedelic station... I have a lot of fun trying to shout out the name of each new song/artist that comes on, in the first few seconds of each one, just so I can show off that I know them all (just shouting to myself, with nobody else around). But then sometimes there are ones I don't know. I like being surprised.
