The very first internet station ever, out of Freedom California is:
Run by real music enthusiasts, they find lots of unusual stuff.
No top 40 or pop.
Mostly a funky country rock blues style. Some comedy from time to time.
They play , Allman Bros, Neil Young, Etta James, Van Morrison, Little Feat, some bluegrass and lots of unheard of originals.
I highly recommend a good listen.
I really dont listen to too much internet radio, (2 channel is too costly!) but if I ever do, it is usually to e-radio.gr, direct and with many stations from Athens,Greece. Great to explore foreign music, broaden some horizons? I also listen to cbc radio 2, also available on internet, live.
May I amend this a bit to suggest favorite shows? for instance, I found a radio station in San Francisco called KFOG which is alaternative rock and they do an interestint "Ten at 10" show in the morning (10am) and repeat in the evening(10pm) weekdays, which has ten songs from a given year and is commercial-free during this show. They also do a nice acoustic Sunrise/Sunset on Sundays.
Worth a try.
Aural Moon - www.auralmoon.com - includes the Gagliarchives plus a whole lot more - prog rock at its best
SomaFM - www.somafm.com - techno, electronica, lounge, indie - all stations at least 128k and very well programmed, plus lots of other formats and bitrates
There are a ton of college and independent radio stations that also stream and, while the quality of the content can vary widely, almost all of them have something worth listening to. I used to live in Eugene, OR and there are 3 really good stations there: KLCC, KRVM and KWVA. I'm listening to bluegrass on KRVM right now, even though I live in NY... :-)
