Best Radio Stations Ever

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 - sUx2Bu

We can only wish here in Buffalo

2 107.3 The Eagle - Tampa, FL
3 97 Country - Lakeland, FL
4 Q105 - Tampa, FL

Hi I love flordia

5 US 103.5 - Tampa, FL
6 99.5 WQYK - Tampa, FL
7 K92.3 - Orlando, FL
8 105.9 Sunny FM - Orlando, FL
9 WXRT-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.

I was born and raised in Chicago and in some places the station was hard to receive because the transmitter tower was on the NW side of the city. It did not matter. We did what we needed with wire, coat hangers and tin foil to listen to the best station in the city all day.

12 WNEW-FM - New York

The ultimate late 60s, early 70s rock station. Will live in our hearts and souls for all eternity.

Best mix of music ever, don't have rock stations any more with such a variety.

We play aguessing game from the oldies played

WNEW FM 102.7 Was the only station I listened to because of their Free Form broadcasts. The on air personalities had no restrictions as to what they could play. From Zep to Back and anywhere in between. For many years it was voted as Americas top radio stations by Rolling Stone Magazine when it was worth reading. Right now I wouldn't line the bottom of a bird cage with it if I had a bird. RIP Allison Steele the woman who pioneered in radio for other women to follow.

Doing things no other radio stations were doing like broadcasting live show like the final Night of the Fillmore East as well as other shows. Sponsoring live concerts on the Sheep Meadow in Central park

LONG LIVE WNEW FM the place where Rock Used to Live.

17 KMET-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.

Whoo-Ya, Too-Ya, best rock station ever!

18 WMMS-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.

This station broke some of the biggest acts, like springsteen and rush,

I grew up with this station. It defined Cleveland and Rock-N-Roll

24 KISS-FM 106.1 - Seattle, WA

34 Kerrang! 105.2 Birmingham
35 KYSR/98.7 - Los Angeles

Better than KROQ. KROQ is all pop and annoying electronic music. 98.7 has great alternative classics like rhcp or linkin park - mr_crossover27

36 KAAY-AM - Little Rock, Ar.

I grew up listening to this station late at night back in the 70’s. Very popular.

37 WFUV-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.

38 KBCO-FM - Boulder, Colo.
39 99X 97.9 - Georgia

Old wet willie, &CDB and Lynyrd Skynyrd Pickin down in Jacksonville & Atlanta HOT 'Lanta, don't forget grand Funk Railroad and Tri-Cities WQUT 101.5 & Knoxvilles'Tennessee, 103.5

40 Today FM - Ireland
41 92.3 KGON - Oregon

The only radio station on this list I have ever listened to. I really need to get out of Oregon more often, apparently.

42 Radio Nova 100.3 - Dublin Ireland
