    Best radio station on the East Coast; FAR more interesting and diverse than anything Chicago has to offer. Chicago's so-called alternative station "for music lovers" doesn't even measure up to WMMR, an excellent radio station, let alone 'XPN, a stellar radio station.

    Great station, have been a fan since the 80's when I lived in NJ. Now via internet here in Europe (Austria + Portugal).
