Satellite Radio. My favorite stations on Sirius are Channel 22-First Wave which is alternative 80s. I also like Channel 15-Deep Cuts, Channel 33-The Bridge, which is mellow rock like Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt as opposed to soft rock Air Supply etc., which I like too. There is also a station like 91.3 WYEP "Where the music matters." It is called Spectrum. It has a public radio format, kind of adult alternative. Satellite radio is how radio should be. It is about freedom of choice. I just could not take the state of commercial radio in Pittsburgh any more. I am sure it is the same elsewhere. It was a very good investment for someone like me who does not watch movies or TV shows like American Idol or other garbage. My love is music and Pittsburgh radio was just not cutting the mustard.

Actually I have Sirius too. First Wave 22 is the most frequent music channel, perhaps, but I have been listening more to Sirius-XM U 26 (formerly Left of Center, this is the "college radio" type station) and a bit of Alt Nation 21, and there are a few others on the presets. Although I've only ever subscribed to Sirius (for about 3-4 years now), the actual best satellite music channel I ever heard died with the merger: XM Fred. I had a rental car once with XM, drove to Boston and back, and we had it on all the time. Unlike First Wave (which is what they replaced it with for XM people when they did the channel standardizing, sucks for them), it didn't repeat so much when you listened for long stretches. They played a lot more variety.

Morning and evening rush hour times I tend to listen to NPR News on WDUQ.

96.1 KISS FM. I've actually been listening to them for years. I love Top 40. I could only take WAMO in small doses since they liked to cater to the YOUNG crowd. However, I do miss being able to turn them on, when running errands in my car. That was usually the only time I'd listen to WAMO..or on Sunday evenings when Nick Nice played old school.

I think "urban radio" will come back to Pittsburgh. WAMO was one of the older stations with that format too.
