Thank heavens for Internet radio

It doesn’t take a weekend out of town like I had this past weekend in Austin to realize that, as much as I like where I live, the radio in this area really blows. And that’s really saying something because I’m within earshot of the nation’s fourth largest city, Houston. Man, you’d think Houston would have a decent radio station. But really, in my estimation, it doesn’t.

Austin does have one really great radio station, KGSR-FM. And you can hear it on the Internet by magically clicking here! Check out their recent airplay: Tracy Chapman, Coldplay, Ry Cooder, Eliza Gilkyson, Rodney Crowell, Delbert McClinton, John Hiatt … And that’s not to mention my hearing old things from Traffic and Little Feat this past weekend. Jesus Tap Dancing Christ that is some good music.

I also have a Louisiana Internet favorite, KBON-FM in Eunice, La. You can savor this experience by clicking RIGHT CHERE! This station has perhaps the best mix of soul, Cajun, Swamp pop, maybe even a surprise thrown in there, that you can find.

I’m glad these choices exist on the Internet because, quite frankly, broadcast radio has gone to hell in a handbasket. At least that’s the case where I live.
