I just had my catalan-born best friend staying with me here for a couple of weeks. He made a really nice dish with beans, chard and bacon. His whole family is indeed interesting.

Does anyone know any Toronto radio stations that just play good classic rock and also one that plays old school hip-hop/R&B? anywhere from 70's to early 2000's. I can't take most of the new music out these days on the radio, especially that dance crap.

there are lot of those on siriusxm (satellite) radio. But yea 107.1 is probably your best bet on FM, 102.1 is also rock radio, but there's lot of garbage too. Love the Dean Blundell show though, it's on early in the morning.

If you listen online, try this station. 60's, 70's, punk, pop, rock, new wave, 80's, 90's, deep album cuts, live tracks...they play it all. It's about as eclectic a playlist as you'll find.

107.7 The Lake

Here you go - it really depends on what you want. I like Y108 and 97.7 HTZ FM as there is more variety (classic rock and current up until now). I like the others too but I like the idea of a station just having any rock song available.

Q107 (107.1) - classic rock

91.7 GIANT FM - classic rock

Y108 (107.9) - rock from all eras (up until now)

97.7 HTZ FM - similar to the above

103.3 FM THE EDGE (BUFFALO) ROCK RADIO - similar to above but hard to get the signal

102.1 THE EDGE - modern/current era and alternative

man what the heck happened at 102.1?

For a long time it was the best source for good and not exactly mainstream music. and then they stopped calling themselves CFNY and became unlistenable.

well i know what happened (figured they get more ratings by playing worse music which i'm sure they did).

Worse music? I don't listen to music on the radio anymore I just listen to my iPod at this point but isn't 102.1 a mix of more recent music and older stuff?

if you used to listen to and liked 102.1 in the mid 90s, you would know what i meant. It changed a ton.

I don't know what it's like now as the only FM station i listen to is the classical music one.

Satellite radio is so superior to terrestrial radio it's pretty laughable.

All I use is 87.7 and connect the transmitter for my phone. The radio is garbage. I noticed 102.1 plays good music early in the morning, I guess when they arent forced to play the radio crap.

Not all radio stations are garbage. It depends on one's tastes and if one is aware of a station that suits them.

Ye that is true, just the typ of music I like, is not really played on the radio. Not into the whole popo thing. Even if there is one song I do like, it gets overplayed until I dont like it anymore
