Interesting site, gwbeers. Thanks for posting it.
I’ve spent about an hour traveling around the world on this site and have come to a few conclusions.
First, there are very few jazz and classical stations anywhere on the planet.
Second, the entire population of the earth is being deluged with crappy electronically processed noise that is being passed off as music.
Third, artificial digital reverb knobs are very popular in recording studios around the world, and the recording engineers cannot keep their damned hands off of them.
Fourth, Cambodian music is really strange.
Right now, I’m listening to some delightful classical music coming from San Francisco. Prior to that, I was listening to a good classical station in Russia.
I’ll continue traveling the FM world on this site. It’s very interesting.
Just found a nice jazz station in Hayama, Japan. And another one in Yokohama, Japan. Classic Rock (Eagles - Hotel California) in Suwon-Si, South Korea. Zero FM stations in North Korea.
I have one of the Sony HD tuners Sam Telling raved about years ago in Stereophile....sweet sounding little box. Here in Col. Spring we have 5-6 stations worth listening to incl. a listener supported classical station KCME, with no college connection, no commercials. Great music, local announcers, live concert broadcasts and more; https://www.kcme.org/
Yes, you can stream from anywhere with web access, but sounds so good on the Sony tuner. Also started an Jazz exclusive station in late 2017 Jazz 93.5 : https://www.jazz935.org/
I agree with chrisoshea. If you are lucky enough to have a really well-supported public station playing classical or jazz much of the day, a good tuner (mine is a tubed Fisher FM-90B) beats being online for sound quality. Plus you can find NPR news online, which is the only broadcast media other than the BBC that allows you to find out what is really going on in the world.
