Default Radio stations ?

I am starting to really lose interest in the FAN 590. Especially in the morning as Greg Brady makes me want to drive my car into a wall (they fired the wrong guy).

I am feeling the need to listen to some other radio stations on my drives and would like to hear some input as to what some good radio stations are.

So far i am 0 for. well pretty much. The best i can come up with are the classical channel and the jazz channel. and i barely like those genres of music, but at least it's better than top 40. CBC radio 2 seems OK as well.

So what are some acceptible AM FM radio stations in the GTA. i'd love to know.

They fired Lang? He's a massive tool but Brady I have to agree is far worse. Yeah there isn't a whole lot to listen to on terrestrial radio. Not sure you would have interest but I highly recommend satellite radio. Tons of stations with any genre you'd want.

Aside from that, have you tried 1010AM (TSN)? I find it better than the Fan590, at least in the morning. In the afternoon I find the Fan to be pretty good, 1-7pm anyway.

i hear lots of good things about sattelite radio, but it's not on my horizon. I just want anything that's not top 40 in any genre.

and ya just about the only time i can listen to the FAN anymore is tim and sid.

Fancy, I love the classical 96.3 guys. So calm and mellow in the morning. That said I listen to the station all the time so I'm biased.

CBC Radio 2 isn't bad at all...

I've liked listening to the music on Indie 88. Can be pretty repetitive, though, so only hear and there.

Dang, I tried posting a link to AOL Radio, as I was going to recommend that for internet music listening. But they just changed their browsing format, and the place is all messed up now.

Fan 590 is changing up their radio lineup.

No more Tim and Sid 1-4 on radio. They're switching to TV. (congrats to them though)

Mornings: Dean Blundell & Andrew Walker
9-12: Jeff Blair
12-1: Hockey/Baseball Central
1-4: Greg Brady
4-7 PTS

new sched apparently.
