    Fave commercial alt. rock at the moment:

    1. CD 101/Columbus
    2. FM 94/9/San Diego
    3. WEQX

    That's about it. I've got all the "top" commercial alt. rockers in my iPhone but they all sound way too corporate and repetitive. Strangely enough, The Spy/OKC is too obscure and non-repetitive. There's a fine line here. There's a balance that is attainable between art and commerce. Viva REV 105.

    Funny thing, I felt the SAME exact way about said station. You just can't put your alternative obscurities from the 80's 90's and onward on shuffle and expect a good alternative station. There has to be a balance.

    I rather like The Spy, and at the same time the WOXY people think I'm too repetitive. I'm confused.

    When you're a commercial alternative station broadcasting on FM like The Spy is versus WOXY.com which was internet only (with the exception of an HD-2 in Cincy), obviously things are different. But then again, WOXY is no longer around, so there you go.

    Re: Favorite Alternative radio stations

    My favorite stations are defunct as FM stations go. 99.1 WHFS/DC has ended up a subchannel on 94.7 HD2 and Y100/Philly is XPNs 88.5 HD2. HFS is pretty much a listener suggested MP3 broadcast but Y-Rock has some very good DJs and a following and is actually more cutting edge than when on FM main channels. But as far as my FM radio goes at work.....nada...no,not nada surf just ........

    C'mon Evolve, you can at least produce a top five.

    Like Vincent Vega once said, "You gotta have an opinion."

    Interesting list, I've heard of maybe two out of those twenty stations. I'd be willing to bet, most of them lean heavy on the active rock? ;D

    Which two? Ok, I see the Buzz in KC on your list, so what was the other station?

    Yes, most do lean heavily on active rock, which seems to be the current trend of most alt rock formats. 101X in Austin has stayed true to the format, and that is why it is tops on my list. I am guessing you are from the northeast, just by looking at your list.
