    Not too bad. I'm playing the "roots" station which is 40's through the 80's. I kinda wish they'd go back to the 20's with Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, but this will do for background. I think I have almost everything they've played so far, but it's better than having to program it myself when I'm busy. Thanks again!

    It's a trade off whichever way ya go, I reckon. Pandora has Jimmie Rodgers, Carter Family, Gene Autry, and others of that era, but so far, I like the better variety of this station.

    SomaFM has a nice selection of stations but they are always one fund drive away from going under.

    My sister up on Ontario loves Boom 97.3 boom973.com and regularly streams that around her house while my mother loves Talkstreamlive.com and has that going 24/7

    Ah yes, the NPR gambit. They've been doing it since I started listening in ~2001. Still, they are my driving go-to with many miles logged on Space Station.

    By no fault of their own, sadly.

    I'm a little late to the game but thought I might contribute two of my favorite NY metro OTA stations that also stream on the internet. I've missed them since we moved and recently discovered internet radio via Tunein and Vtuner. I found Iheart a bit "bloated". I may never worry about putting up an antenna again.

    Jazz - WBGO, 88.3 on your FM dial.
    Classical - WQXR - 105.9

    Also, there are college stations like WSOU, WFDU, and WKCR but they can't really be considered genre specific.

    The area has a gazillion others but nothing that I can't live without.

    I'm open to suggestions for similar stations.

    And, yes, I love Pandora Plus. I've used that for years and have fine tuned several genre specific radio stations.

    When it comes down to the bit rate/sound versus the musical content, the later will win every time, unless it sounds totally awful..

    Listening to John Pizzarelli’s Radio Deluxe show right now on WQXR/WNYC, via the innerwebs. Johnathan Schwartz’s show was also a regular Saturday listen around these parts, until he got caught up in the scandal. Too bad, he loved the Great American Songbook, and promoted plenty of unknown singers during his tenure. Will miss his show.
