I like local stations with local people talking about issues relevant to the community,CJAD800 for me.
The big national channels are a buzzkill as all they talk about is doom and gloom.

With me it's KAFM-88.1, serving Mesa County in western Colorado. Volunteer dj's all the way--two hours of jazz, two hours of 50's/60's country, two hours classical, two hours classic rock, two hours soundtrack cuts, two hours who knows after that! A set playlist? Nope! They have fundraisers yearly and I am glad to contribute. Local artists play in the radio room, cd's made after the show is over.

Tied for first is 106.1 KRZX. They are required by FCC to give their call letters every half hour--and they do. And that's all they do, no news no commercials, no BS. Just music. Earlier this week I gave 'em a listen as I was coming back from Montrose and they went on a 1968 kick;

Free Spirit- Crispian St. Peter
You Got To be Loved- Montanas
Here's To You- Hamilton Camp
Those Were The days- Cream (Wheels Of Fire LP)
Tin Soldier- Small Faces
Dr. Livingston I Presume- Moody Blues (In Search Of The Lost Chord LP)
L. David Sloane- Michele Lee
Bella Linda- Grassroots
Susan- Buckinghams
The Son Of Hickory Hollers Tramp- O.C. Smith

Every half hour? FCC requires every hour for a legal ID, which is the call letters and the city of license. Never heard of the requirement for every half hour. Well... I may remember just the call letters at the bottom of the hour a while back...

You're right, it's every hour. I've gotten used to them giving the call letters every 30 minutes or so. I love the station though, I've grown weary of the top 20, the bottom 20, and the middle 20 all being the same 20.

Regarding KAFM, if I'm going to listen to news at noon, I can cope with local news regarding local issues. I've turned off the rest of the news, too depressing.
