My hometown favorite, All Classical Portland, KQAC, 89.9 on the FM dial. Good mix. "Sunday Brunch" with Suzanne Nance (eclectic) at 10 a.m. (Pacific time) and "The Score" (movie scores) with Edmund Stone on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. are particular favorites. Listener-supported, it Has a couple of fundraising campaigns every year; one's going on right now.
I cannot recommend based on a lack of dissonance or any compositional style but I listen to actual radio via internet streaming. My three favorites are; ‘BBC Radio 3’, which is British and of course in English. ‘WDR 3’ from Cologne, Germany which of course is in German but the programming is very high end and lastly, ‘France Musique’ from Paris and offers a good deal of live recordings from local Parisian performances.
Internet streaming is at a disadvantage given file compression. I had hoped that the internet streaming of these stations would be at a higher degree of quality by now but I guess server space is still at a premium. So I just stream these stations via an iMac, Amarra SQ, Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt and a sound bar and I’m usually working while I listen.
