Default Internet radio: your favorites

Thanks to EC8010 I just rediscovered Jazzfm, (www.jazzfm.com) a favorite internet radio station and Iím interested if more quality stations are out there.
You need to register to listen.
So, what internet stations do people listen to in other parts of the world?

kfog san francisco Sunday morning...Acoustic Sunrise...7 AM - 1 PM San Francisco time

kplu Jazz from Seattle-Tacoma

http://www.swissradio.ch/ Nice Opera, Classical and Jazz streams

At one time I was able to get some very high quality classical streams from Sweden but they must have changed url's...does anyone have the url's?

radioiojazz which I get for free at 128kb/44 khz with my audiotron...lower quality streams are available free.

kzmu Moab Utah...wind powered internet radio...a bit uneven but has some great shows.

There is quite a bit of good stuff out there...I take the digital out and use an external dac....in to a couple pairs of stacked Insignia speakers and an inexpensive Parts Express 12" sub...sounds very good for what it is...

Sure you can't expect high quality, it's just fun to explore new worlds of music.

Exactly...you have access to almost infinite variety and it's free....

And, I have to admit...I'm surprised at how good the better streams are. I have a few nice FM tuners but Albuquerque does not have any good stations or anything with a good signal so I have forgotten what a Mac MR-77 sounds like with a good signal....so I cannot make any good comparison.

I occasionally tune in to Radio Helsinki. I'm half Finnish but I don't speak the language so I can't understand the DJ's at all, and I never have a clue what they might be playing, but that's the fun of internet radio.

In my younger days I worked at the #1 station in Phoenix, Arizona U.S.A. It soon became evident how media, $$$ and advertising driven that bis is. Like everything is today.
However, a few years ago, some old, affluent guy(only slightly older than myself) just went out and bought a radio station outside of town, set-up his own playlist and started broadcasting. Without any commercials or advertisers??? It is available on the www also
