XPN is almost as good as my favorite, WRNR.

    Outside of Maryland, my favorites are The Point FM in Vermont, 103.7 The Mountain in Seattle and KFOG - San Francisco.
    WRNR would be my #4 right after WXPN.... WHY don't they stream in STEREO??!!

    Welcome back, JOE!@! Haley and Dave can listen online to WNCS (I think) but WILL they? Methinks they're too busy deciding which Boston track to debut and what other Bad Company song they can add.

    WRNR just started streaming again a few months ago and they promote it a lot. They don't come in good inside the DC beltway and it's spotty around most of Baltimore. They are not a big city radio station and that's what I like about them. It's a shame more radio stations arent as fun to listen to as RNR. The DJ's actually have a personality.

    SuperRadioFan,

    I listen to "The sound" online all the time, and I don't think they're as bad as you make them out to be. Maybe it's a matter of personal taste, but honestly, I've heard AAA stations that play more classic rock than KSWD does. KSWD is more of a Mellow AAA, in my opinion.

    If you think "The Sound" plays too much Classic Rock, you should check out the WLKK station I talked about before. If you don't like "The Sound," then you won't like "The Lake." Listen to them online at: www.1077thelake.com, then you can come back and tell me that "The Sound" plays too much Classic Rock.

    Kid..... I don't need to listen, I just checked a few of the songs they've played [very klunky way of getting info about what songs they have played BTW] So I looked at maybe 25-30 songs.... If you think THIS is "AAA" then you must think KOLA is rap. Seriously, for me they would be unlistenable since I saw zero songs that can be considered AAA, I didn't see any currents in there just gold stuff.

    I'll say again to me a really good adult alternative station is KINK-FM or WRNR. Check out those station's playlists and then compare with The Sound's.

    Re: Best AAA station

    My favorites would be:

    -KMTT "103.7 The Mountain" Seattle
    -KFOG "K Fog" San Francisco
    -KPRI San Diego
    -WZGC "92-9 Dave FM" Atlanta
    -WLKK "107-7 The Lake" Buffalo
    -KSWD "100.3 The Sound" Los Angeles


    I also really liked 94.7 The Globe in D.C. until they flipped from AAA to classic rock recently. Overall, I don't necessarily judge by music, but I tend to pay most attention to the presentation, sweepers, and the "feel" of the station. That's why I chose the ones I did above. Many of these aren't "groundbreaking" as far as musical playlists go, but they all have a great "vibe" and "feel" to their presentation. Oh, and since someone was talking about WLKK "the Lake" in Buffalo; I discovered them on a recent trip to Niagara Falls and Buffalo and fell in love with them. Sure, they lean towards classic rock a bit, but the presentation is unique and really makes the station sound like no other that I've heard. It's really laid back, and really tied into the area that they serve. You can't truly appreciate the feel of this station by simply looking at the playlist online. I would definitely recommend actually streaming them and listening for an hour or two sometime when you want to chill out and relax.
