    You can listen to XPN on your phone, laptop, etc. at XPN.Org and I highly recommend it. Its member funded so no advertisements and they can play whatever the hell they want, most of it being awesome (like Japanese Breakfast).

    I will 2nd WXPN. I listen through their app, which is free to download. 4 to 7pm is prime time, especially on Fridays, when that time is Funky Fri.

    That is why XPN is different. Mostly adult contemporary during the day, but they highlight new artists. There are a ton of artists I have first heard there. Mon to Thurs it is all 70s music.

    Lately I’ve been obsessed with listening to the rat pack.

    Speaking as an old college radio nerd, college radio is where it's at. In the Philly area, you have XPN as the polished professional outfit, but there's also the student-run WKDU (Drexel) and WPRB (Princeton). Temple's WRTI also does a nice job if you're into the Jazz & Classical scenes.

    WTSR 91.3 is a classic college radio station in trenton, Nj. Range isnt too far, but it plays the classic style of indie college radio. Folk guitar to punk.

    Love these guys. They have a history of making silly skits / intros combined with intense music. They're metalhead goofballs and I love it.

    Ubuntu Linux has a built in radio streaming app that has a ton of college stations. I run a VM to play it

    This is the dumbest and most convoluted way to do it but whatever

    For the record, I don't understand any of this, but I'm just happy you are supporting college radio.

    I basically had my college station on speed dial so I could call in an ask what songs they were playing if I liked them. They probably hated me on some level, but at the same time seemed excited someone was listening to whatever they'd curated as a playlist

    Being on the air in the middle of nowhere can get lonely, so I loved when people called in. At least I knew someone was listening. I use to do a Blues show one day a week and this couple would always call in to request songs for each other, always Buddy Guy if memory serves. I eagerly awaited their calls every week.

    Heard BTO Let It Ride today. Had to be one of my first favorite songs. I remember it playing loudly on a ride called the Caterpillar in OC NJ.

    If I had to count... maybe 8 to 10 times so far? Goddamn. Might be my favorite album from top to bottom all year so far.

    Same, I spun records (LOL) in college and when anyone called it was landmark, because pretty much no one ever did. Back then I thought it was because everyone was too stoned call, but now I know that no one was listening. Sobering.
