    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.
    Ok, well I know KROQ, 96-5 The Buzz, and 91x, I guess that's three. If you like how 101X sounds, you should check out some of the stations in my list. They all tend to focus on the more "Indie" alternative acts, such as Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Mumford & Sons, The XX, etc.

    WCPR is active rock.

    I used to live in San Diego and I loved FM 94/9. I was listening when it signed on! I had no idea it was switching (it had been an 80s station). Another stations I liked but are no longer around are New Rock One Zero Seven from Pensacola, 93X Memphis and the Zephyr from New Orleans.

    I checked out 101.7 out of Boston and 101.9 in New York, those were more "indie" than active, which is good. WFNX's coverage area isn't all that great, but as long as your in Boston it doesn't matter.

    I'm glad you mentioned 106.1 The Zephyr out of New Orleans, I grew up listening to that station. I was really sad when it flipped, I was about 16 at the time.

    I went to college at Southern Miss and sometimes the Zephyr's signal would come into Hattiesburg. Was a real treat when it did come in.

    By the way, I'm probably guilty of being too subtle, but this is probably not the time for subtlety...

    I've been running a web-based station since 2000, and have graduated up to an HD2 here in central NJ, with a Modern Rock station that's free of Active Rock incursions on "true alternative", so to speak.

    We're Altrok 90.5 HD2, you can tune in online at http://wbjb.org/altrok and we're a lot of folks' new favorite station...hopefully yours, too.

    If you're in the south, try WRLT lightning 100 in Nashville. I find them to be quite enjoyable......

    WRLT is an Adult Album Alternative station, albeit a decent one.

    Take KSJO Channel 92.3 off my list. Yet another great station Clear Channel has screwed up, they have now recently tweaked their playlist (for the bad, of course). Gone is the good alternative music they were playing before from new and upcoming acts like Hockey, We Are Scientists, Miike Snow, The Gaslight anthem etc. As well as great older classic modern rock from the 80's and 90's, including deeper songs like Love and Rockets "All In My Mind", The Clash's "Police On My Back", that were in rotation, among others. Added instead now are the crappy active rock artists from the corporate cookie cutter playlist including Shinedown, Seether, Evanescence (puke). As well as your hourly dose of the overplayed Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park tracks we've all heard 10,000 times. With that, the station is bland as hell now. In other words, it sounds like every other crappy station CC runs. I remember when 92.3 first launched and I heard how good it was I knew it was only a matter of time before they ruined it.

    Clear Channel sucks!!!
