    You suck as a radio, you are a cd store, a concert promoter, a tour company, a Bank and you ARE a commercial radio because you DO have sponsorship and collect street money. You ARE doing a great job trying to brain wash us to buy the music that YOU want us to listen to. YOU do not know much about music. Every time YOU try to sell us an artist YOU say to us, THIS is the music YOU want, and WE will give YOU what YOU want because WE know YOU want it! YOU don't know what I want, you don't play the music I like. You only play 5 types of music, You're not eclectic (did you drop that?) Get rid of those overpaid NO talent female dj's and you wouldn't have to have all of those greedy extortion drives you have several times a year. You only hired them for their voices, not talent everything they say seems so scripted (especially the one with that laughing bedroom giggle

    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).
