radio stations for non-street youths

Hi lovelies!

So I'm pretty much gonna get straight to it today. For a long time, I hated listening to the radio. Where I live, like 60% of the stations are Christian, which is great and all, but not my style. The rest are like top 20 and rap and I don't like feeling like a street youth all the time. (p.s. please tell me you got that New Girl reference. If you did, I want to be friends.) Anyways, so what does a non-religious/non-thugging girl listen to in the car?

For awhile, the answer was CDs. But that got really tedious to always buy new CDs when I want new music or burn them myself. And that's when I downloaded the glorious app that is iHeartRadio. Just turn it on, let it play. It's life changing, y'all.

Here are three radio stations you should listen to if you are not a street youth. 

The Current 89.3, courtesy of Minnesota Public Radio. Minnesota's Indie, Alt & Roots Station. Playing while I wrote this? An advertisement for a co-op (boo! to the ad, not the co-op). After the ad, "Seven Days, Seven Nights" by the Fratellis. Oh but the annoying thing about The Current is that you can't see the song name on the app--so frustrating!! But you can always look it up online when it's playing. And they have a cool show of Minnesota local music at 6-8 p.m. CST, on Sunday nights. Listen online here.

KCRW 89.9, LA's Independent Music, News & Talk. Playing while I wrote this? A piece on a woman with a driving campaign in Saudi Arabia--which was fascinating. After that, a song by Portugal. The Man--didn't catch the name. Oh and they have a really rad show on weekdays from 9am to noon PST called "Morning Becomes Eclectic" with live performances by bands. You should listen to it.

KEXP 90.3, "where the music matters". This one is not on iHeartRadio but you can listen online at Playing while I wrote this? "Dear Friend" by Jonathan Wilson and then "The Golden Age" by Beck. My favorite show is "The Morning Show" (weekdays, 6-10 am PST) which is this super peppy guy with random music for the mornings. Lurv.

Welp there you go. Thug-proof music. You're welcome. My work here is done.

Over and out.

  1. Alliiieee! Loving this! The Current is actually playing right now and it sounds just like the radio station I've always looked for. Around here most of the radio stations play the list hits over and over and over again and it's hard to escape them. So an indie station like this? definitely downloading iHeartRadio and listening to The Current non-stop!

  2. I have never heard of these stations but maybe I should check them out!

  3. I LOVE KCRW. That is my station of choice when I'm at home.
