The Spirit of Radio  
quelonzia just defined exactly what makes a good radio station:

"They play what you want to hear, when you didn't know you wanted to hear it."

This is why I often prefer to listen to the radio rather than focus strictly on my own collection of CDs or MP3s, and why I was so dismayed by the demise of KMAX.

She was prompted to this observation after this morning's coffee run, when KUFX responded to our nostalgic conversation about Elric of Melniboné with a "triple play" of Blue Öyster Cult.
I feel: pleasedpleased
I hear: The Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin (on KUFX)

Such radio stations still exist somewhere in the world? I wish there were one here in the Puget Sound, still. But, whatever the case, Quelonzia is exactly right.

Somewhere, but not, alas, here. KUFX, the local Classic Rock station, is hit or miss: when they're on, they're ON, but generally, they're "merely inoffensive." Except during Hockey Season.

The late, lamented KMAX was most definitely ON, 24/7.

I stopped listening to the radio when I got absolutely sick and tired of the repetitive, repetitive, REPETITIVE commercials.
