I'm probably going back to Sirius XM as soon as I can...until then, I listen to 97.1 the Fan for sports talk...its the only thing I can listen to in the car

Looks like 105.7 changed to what 106.7 was. They change their format from the 80's to alternative. It's now 105.7 The X.

Great news...they were one of like 3 classic rock stations...already had 96.3 and 103.9 playing classic rock...didn't need a 3rd.

I would say go with any iHeart Radio station, which you can detect by going to their website. It's much better than locally owned radio stations. iHeart Radio stations are like the Uber (compared to Taxis) of radio stations (compared to local stations). Welcome to the 21st century. If you want local radio, get back to rural Ohio where all they talk about is division five high school basketball. I personally listen to 97.9, the best station for pop/top 40 music. If you want an alternative station, look for an iHeart alternative in Columbus. I'm sure they have one. Hail iHeart!

Well, last week 105.7 changed from alternative to Sports Talk. Argh. Do we really need another station like that? Now all we have for alt rock in Columbus is the ultra-indie 102.5. Anyone know if the old 105.7 alternative format is on an HD subchannel somewhere?

Agreed. Need a 105.7 equivalent. Wasn't happy to find 105.7 changed to sports talk...

Alternative music just doesn't have that big of a listening audience. It's going away like classic rock is (there's one classic rock station). So CD101 or 102.5 is enough for most people even though the playlist is still terrible. They go too far off the deep end I think.

No clue what I'll replace my 105.7 button on my radio in my car. I did a seek through all the stations and nothing *new* interests me.

By the way I now mostly play internet music. I subscribed to Slacker for $4 a month. Get unlimited skips, no ads, and 320kbps quality. Also offline listening but I rarely use it. I can pick a band I like and after about a week of downvoting and picking favorites, I can get it to about where I want it. Plus with Tmobile which is my carrier, it doesn't use my data allotment so it's truly unlimited for me. Switched out my radio with one that has bluetooth A2DP plugin so I can listen to music without an audio cord.

While in my wifes car, which has HD radio, I did a quick scan. The 105.7 alt format is nowhere to be found. I know it used to be the subchannel of 105.7 a few years ago, now that slot is classic rock.

Finally moved to XM Satelite radio...never going back. Local radio is no longer worth worrying about.

It depends on your taste. 106.3 has a throwback hip-hop format which stays glued to my car stereo.
