Default Good, free Internet Streaming sources.

Currently, I like the Jazz Groove and even donated during their recent fund drive.

As I grew up in the 60 - 70's I'd like to find a similar "free" non-jazz streaming source of popular music from this era.

I recently hit upon such a station, but they are an FM broadcaster and clearly their internet stream is just a pipe of their highly COMPRESSED FM broadcast. So Too Bad - The music mix is fantastic IMHO

Anyone know of such a station? There's Radio Paradise of course with their FLAC streams, but unfortunately I cant stand any of their mixes and have to quit them in ~15 minutes...

Unlike the Jazz Groove, where I could easily listen all day long - or until I'm simply tired of Jazz / listening to music.

Thanks for any help with this!

Drat I was going to suggest RP. Roon has some nice ones built in. . . I need to listen to some of them.
I'll pay attention to this thread, I'd like to find some more stations too.

Years ago, while driving from Lisboa to Porto in Portugal, I found the Smooth Jazz station. No commercials and remarkably, uninterrupted coverage throughout the trip. That means they have more than one transmitter broadcasting the same material, as the distance between those two cities is longer than the regular FM station coverage range. They also stream over the Internet an the web page shows other musical styles available.

SmoothFM

Thanks guys. What I meant to say is I have the Jazz pretty well covered, but am looking for 70's -ish classic radio station.

RetroRadioCalifornia (Retro Radio California) is the one with the clear compression. I guess they're a global internet radio station - not an FM broadcaster with a stream on the side. Why they compress like that is beyond me...

I'll look into the suggestions. Appreciate it!
