While on vacation in North Carolina I stumbled upon a radio station that plays a great mix of tunes. If you’re in the Raleigh area you can tune in to 93.9 WKSL – but otherwise you will need windows media player to tune in by clicking the “listen now” link at the 93.9 website. Yes it even works on my mac (check http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/flip4mac.mspx or http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/video/windowsmediaplayerformacosx.html)
What makes this station so good? Well it’s all about the mix – in the last half hour I’ve heard music I love from the Motown era, the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and even a song I don’t really like that came out this year (some pink or fergie song… I dunno). There is no station like this in NYC right now so I am bearing with the fact that all the 93.9 ads and weather & traffic updates are local to NC 🙂
If you’re looking for a radio station (yeah I said it – a radio station. I know you have mp3’s – so do I) that plays a great mix of stuff – I suggest you check it out. Beware though – the site is hideously ugly and slow.
