I thought this would be an interesting thread, to go along with the other threads..

Tells us what your city you are in (or near) and what are the radio presets in your car.

I'm located just east of Raleigh, NC and can pick up Raleigh-Durham stations and several in eastern NC; Here are my presets, although I mostly listen to my Ipod now

1. 97.5 WQOK (Raleigh)
2. 92.1 WRSV (Rocky Mt/Eastern NC)
3. 93.3 WERO (Eastern NC)
4. 95.5 WPWZ (Rocky Mt/Eastern NC)
5. 105.1 WDCG (Raleigh)
6. 101.1 WZTK (Burlington, although I only listen to this when I'm actually in Raleigh, since the signal is weak in my area)

I live in ABQ and although I listen mostly to Sirius, I have Fm stations on Preset as well as a few AM.

Fm:
93.3 KKOB (ABQ) -Pop
95.1 (ABQ) - RnB
97.3 KKSS (ABQ) - Urban/RnB and Hip Hop
92.3 KRST (ABQ) - Country
107.9 (ABQ) - COuntry

AM:
770 KOB - Listen to this station mainly for Lobo (University of New Mexico) sports. This signal is so strong its been said that it can be heard all the way in Wyoming and sometimes in Los Angeles.

As far as the FM channels, they are all ABQ stations. If you've ever been to the West, you know that there is HUGE masses of land between major cities (or at least in New Mexico).

AM/FM Radio sucks everywhere in the US. It's all about satellite. I listen to classical and NPR on radio, and nothing else. Top 40 stations are GARBAGE!! It's all corporate-owned...ugh...

Good station! My partner now lives near the PA/NJ border, and I love being able to pick up Hot 97 when we're in the Stroudsburgs.
