Wow, some really great stations have been named in this thread! If we include AM stations to this list, I'd add Roger Ashby and Duke Roberts on 1050 CHUM; 680 CFTR; Dave Shafer on CKLW; Fred Winston on WLS; and Larry Lujack ("The World's Greatest Disc Jockey") on WLS and WCFL.

Without a doubt--CKLW, "The Motor City!". Commercial Top 40 for sure, but eclectic. Andy Williams one moment, Cream the next. Elvis, Dylan, Aretha, Sinatra--heard them all there first.

Fellow Chicagoans may remember 103.5 The Blaze from the 90's, a great rock station. I also loved 94.7 with Dick Biondi.

Growing up in Athens Ga I had to struggle to receive my favorite station from Atlanta but most nights I could get it with the Antenna I had setup. WKLS96 Rock. I remember that line like it was yesterday. Classic rock from the 60's and early 70s. Station is no longer around sadly enough.

Without question, WRTI, 90.1 out of Temple University in Philadelphia. Classical from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Jazz the other 12hr. Knowledgeable hosts and programs like opera, Latin jazz and live broadcasts and interviews with various artists. Only drawback is that it is public and spend too much time begging. WXPN, 88.5 is the student-run station from my alma mater, Univ of Pennsylvania. As with any student run org, runs hot & cold, but does have good blues and other programming.

As for tuner expense, one can purchase pieces from the "great tuner era" of the '70s-80s' for very little. Spend $200-500 for a recap and alignment by a 'known good' tuner tech and have an excellent piece of gear that is as good or better than the best offered today, with the possible exception of the TOTL tuners from Accuphase or Dynalab (for many $$thou).

For tuner folks, this is probably the best information website and their Yahoo forum is very good.

Indeed' KMET in LA. Classic rock, classic dj,s Jim Ladd and there was a female dj as well but her name eludes me as well has a few other dj,s of that era at the mighty met.

Used to listen to jim ladd at his 10pm show as a kid growing up in those days. Gone but not forgotten.

KGON-FM, KOPB-FM & KINK-FM are the three stations in my area that prompted me to purchase and erect a high quality antenna.

I wanted the best stations with the best reception I could afford. I still listen to those stations some 30+ years later.
