    I live between Detroit and Ann Arbor, where we have access to a couple decent stations, but nothing like this. I'm continually astounded at the playlists from WBCN! It's pretty, much all I listen to now.

    If you enjoy deep tracks from this period of rock history, 'BCN can't be beat. Live clips, news, everything. Little did I know at the time just how unique BCN was, and how fortunate I was to be in its transmitter range.
