    I like Yahoo! radio, but they have too much that's only available to paying members. I want something with a lot of options that's free, as cheap and greedy as that sounds. :D. I spend a lot of time behind the counter at the youth center I work at, and get bored.

    You have to sign up for Sirius and XM and all that jazz. I'm also looking for low commitment. :D
     
  2. king.org (classical)

    kplu jazz (google it; jazz - from blues, to dixieland, to small group, big band, misc. jazz, everything)

    That's all I know of. I want to know of more too!

    WooHoo another Puget Sounder!

    Daniel.......nice call on KPLU. I go there alot also. I was going to suggest a few local radio stations, but I think the OP is looking for a site that plays different kinds of music. Rhapsody from Comcast is a good one, although it messes with the security settings on your PC.

    The best quality streams I've found are at www.shoutcast.com
    They broadcast from 56k MP3 to 320k MP3.

    If there are sites out there that can beat that broadcast quality, please let me know. :)
