    Default what radio station are you listening to right now?

    Recently ditched the XM subscription which means that, for the first time in my five years as an Angeleno, I'm stuck with terrestrial airwaves. The only stations I'm familiar with are KXLU, KPCC and KCRW - are there any other decent stations out there? Mostly looking for places to listen to music, but if anyone has other thoughts I'd be up for hearing them.

    If youre listening online, I suggest BBC 6 Music. Tons of different programming and great stuff on the weekends, its all those other stations you listed just on steroids.

    I'm curious as to why you decided to stop your subscription. Was it a cost vs. value issue?

    pretty much only listen to am1010 sports out here in the Coachella Valley. You get DP, Rome, Tiki and Tirney(?), a couple pretty good local guys (Dome and T-Minus), and badass ashtray voiced Farrell-on-the Bench.

    if anyone knows of an actual decent music station please let me know. It's all classic/modern rock and can only take that a few times a year.

    KUTX from Austin, and BBC 6 Music provide me with pretty much all the music I need.

    The other BBC services do me for news, and so forth.

    KSPC 88.7 from claremont is good. here's a link to their program schedule.

    Mostly because of the Steve Bannon thing - I felt awful supporting a platform that gives that dude his own show.

    But that was also sort of an impetus for me to get rid of it, to be honest. I'd been thinking about it for a while, not because it was too expensive, but because it was too expensive considering I was already listening to KPCC and KCRW as much as XM U or First Wave.

    I drive over two hours a day on five freeways. I start with a little Dan Patrick and then some Jim Rome/Rich Eisen on the way there. On the way back its usually Petros and Money.

    KSPC is a legendary college radio station which has always been great.
    KVCR (91.9) is the excellent Public Radio station for the Inland Empire.

    Do you have an HD radio? KROQ 2 is KROQ of the 80s. Just as good, if not better, than First Wave. Not many ads either.

    Oh duh, also 93.5 KDAY is the best hip-hop station (it's 90s and West Coast centric).

    I love my SiriusXM. I listen to it at home and in my vehicles. The Groove, The Beatles Channel, and Utopia are my favorites. The only time I listen to terrestrial radio is when I want traffic updates on AM stations.
