Best Radio Stations of All Time

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

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.

No hype - just great music and low key DJ's. The best day in and day out. Listen for 1 hour and you will be hooked!

10 Y100 - Miami

Cause they got Elvis Duran and the YMorning Zoo

Wow number 2 is at 9% and 1 is at 31%.

The Newcomers

? Wrci River Country 97.1
? Radio Bob! - Southern Rock

Internet station. Has the best in classic and modern southern rock.

The Contenders

11 Radio 1 - United Kingdom

Just the best this should be number one the others do not match or even come close to radio 1 defiantly and simply the best radio show in the world!

Actual best where els provides the best music and the best humour? My #1

They always play the best music no matter what time of the day and there's no annoying ads

Notice how all the others are American?

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. Scott Muni the Professor, Rosko Dave Herman,Jonathan Schwartz, Peter Fornatale,Zacherley

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.

13 98.7 The Gater - West Palm Beach, FL
14 Ukhozi FM - South Africa

I love ukhozi fm is th number one radio station! They have good team, they can deliver! They really care from about human life to Environment! UKhozi cares, I like their slogan of its not just a slogan but they do physically practice it!

No. 1 in Africa, they on point and can interact with their listeners. Continue being no. 1 Ukhozi fm

Ukhozi fm is the power radio station in the world they take care of they listeners. BIG UP

Best radio station in the world.

15 Wave 92.7 - Vero Beach, FL
16 WABX-FM - Detroit

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

Best rock station of all time

How bout w4 too

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!

18 100.7 The New River - North Carolina

Wonderful! No repeats! Variety!

19 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

28 KISS-FM 106.1 - Seattle, WA

Best by far

29 Cool FM - United Kingdom
30 CKLW-FM - Windsor, Ont.

The biggest, best, most influential station to ever switch on. The big 8

31 Capital - United Kingdom

Capital is the best

True capital is really fablous to listen to

32 KEXP-FM - Seattle, Wa
33 Y108 ROCKS - Hamilton, ON

The best rock, even if they suck occasionally, they always come back and rock my world again.

34 WCFL-AM - Chicago
35 WFMU-FM - Jersey City
36 WBCN-FM - Boston
37 Q107 - Toronto

Home of Psychedlic Sunday (Best Sunday Show on the dial)!

38 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

39 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.

40 Kerrang! 105.2 Birmingham
41 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

42 KAAY-AM - Little Rock, Ar.

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

43 KBCO-FM - Boulder, Colo.
44 Today FM - Ireland
45 93.5 KDAY - Los Angeles
46 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.

47 Radio Nova 100.3 - Dublin Ireland
48 KKFI-FM - Kansas City
49 KDVS-FM - Davis, Calif.
50 WABC-AM - New York
