The problem with most stations is that they play current music, and the VAST majority of current music (regardless of genre) SUCKS. There's a real problem with talentless "artists" being given record deals and made into superstars via a studio. The music business right now is full of hacks that want to be famous more than they want to be artists and perfect their craft.

Get satellite radio. Worth every penny.

The best station in San Antonio is KSYM 90.1 FM . They play everything from Hank Williams to the Beatles. There is even a surf show called the Casbah. KRTU comes in at a close 2nd and rounding up the top 3 is KEDA.. Yes i know that station is on am but they have a little known fm station on 102.3 FM.

I haven't listened to terrestrial radio in years. It's been worthless for awhile.

SiriusXM for me, all the way.

I remember reading an article in a music magazine around 1971. Somebody figured out that with all possible musical notes and all possible combinations we would run out of new songs by 1978. That might be true. I remember Jimmy Page in an interview saying that if nobody ever wrote another new song he would still have more than enough to listen to. John Lennon went on record saying that all he likes is fifties music. That is all he listens to. I find tons of music to listen to. I listen to radio stations in the car or when working in the yard. Maybe it is time for you to buy a guitar.

Let's assume he said that before he died. That means 50's music was about 25ish years old. That would be like me saying all I like is grunge. For the time it isnt that outlandish of a statement when you put it into perspective.

I agree with the OP San Antonio radio stations downright suck.

And they have been in a constant flux looking up data to see what listeners want.
what I want is the great music from the oldies right about to where it became crap which is about 1999.
right now I'm listening to a 50 60's music playlist on Youtube and it's 1000 times better than SA radio.
