The Top Ten

1
KROQ-FM - Los Angeles
Isn't this the Station where Stone & Digital Dave got their start doing overnights?
back in the day yeah it was good but the bands today I really don't want to hear them because all suck

2107.3 The Eagle - Tampa, FL

397 Country - Lakeland, FL

4Q105 - Tampa, FL

5US 103.5 - Tampa, FL

699.5 WQYK - Tampa, FL

7K92.3 - Orlando, FL

8Y100 - Miami
Cause they got Elvis Duran and the YMorning Zoo
Wow number 2 is at 9% and 1 is at 31%.

9WXRT-FM - Chicago
To be completely honest I wanted to vote for the q101 radio station, but since this radio station is from Chicago this will at least be carrying on it's vote in some sort of spiritual way. So, WXRT deserves to be number one. if that makes any sense
wxrt for 34 years I have seen the rolling stones 3 back up band. I lived 29 miles from the cavern club liverpool you know the band that played there I have heard some music and I still love wxrt chicago
WXRT has consistently played a wide variety of rock music. They give exposure to new bands that may not get any air play on the typical top 40 format oriented stations. You never know what you may hear and that keeps it interesting.

10105.9 Sunny FM - Orlando, FL

The Contenders

11WNEW-FM - New York
The ultimate late 60s, early 70s rock station. Will live in our hearts and souls for all eternity.
One of the first US stations I ever heard and at a time when we never had anything like it in the UK. My fellow NY students said do not go home without listening to WNEW. It took one track to get converted to this American institution.
WNEW as an album rock station sadly no longer exists - but no one has ever beaten it. (Happy 70s memories)
Herman/Fornatale/Muni/Schwartz/Steele/Neer/Scelsa/Elsas. Metromedia. Nothing more need be said. Rock lived and was taught to those lucky enough to be open to learn at 102.7 All one needed was to be able to wear Tonto's Expanding Headband and to hope for peace on Earth.

12Radio 1 - United Kingdom
Actual best where els provides the best music and the best humour? My #1
Come on, does any other Radio have the family-like group of presenters that make the radio and music humorous? Also, name another radio station with the smexiness of Zane Lowe or Dan and Phil? I think not!
Scott mills and Greg James shows are amazing.

1398.7 The Gater - West Palm Beach, FL

14WABX-FM - Detroit
They were the gold standard of the free-form FM era. There will never be another like it.

15Wave 92.7 - Vero Beach, FL

16KMET-FM - Los Angeles
In the most competitive radio market they were able to resist corprate greed and give a group of iconoclastic artists a chance to demonstrate that radio is only as good as the DJs who spin the records.

17WMMS-FM - Cleveland
Lived in Cleveland until 1992. During the 80s and 90s they played great stuff. Great radio station and great on air talent back then. Kid Leo has one of the best voices ever on the radio. The Pretenders and some other bands come to mind as having the first airplay on this station. It is not the same station today. Much more corporate sounding.
Jeff ^^ Flash, Matt the Cat, Kid Leo (The Undisputed, Undefeated Greatest Radio Announcer of All-Time), Denny Sanders, T.R. and The BLF Bash 6A-6A. It never stopped at The Buzzard. Nobody is even close.

18100.7 The New River - North Carolina
Wonderful! No repeats! Variety!

19KMPX-FM - San Francisco

20Ukhozi FM - South Africa

Better than KROQ. KROQ is all pop and annoying electronic music. 98.7 has great alternative classics like rhcp or linkin park

35WFMU-FM - Jersey City

36WFUV-FM - New York
It's pretty much the current incarnation of WNEW. A lot of WNEW's best personalities went to WFUV (Dennis Elsas, Vin Scelsa, and the late Pete Fornatale, most notably), and they have some great personalities of their own as well. Very underrated and underappreciated station- easily the best in the NYC area.

37KBCO-FM - Boulder, Colo.

5293.5 KDAY - Los Angeles

5392.3 KGON - Oregon

54Virgin Radio - Milan

5598.7 Detroit

56WXPN-FM - Philadelphia
Member supported and commercial free. Simulcast sometimes on WKHS right across the Chesapeake from Baltimore. Great mellow station. Eclectic collection of programs. Some call them "adult alternative" and they call themselves "the premier guide for discovering new and significant artists in rock, blues, roots, and folk."

Some of the best radio show are played here. Bax & O'Brien (station), Nights With Alice Cooper (dozens of stations), etc. ALL WITH VARIETY. I've never heard the same song played more than once before.
