I was driving home the other night and was attempting to turn my radio off. Instead, I accidentally changed the setting of a radio station from 100.7 to 100.9. The location I was in allowed me to pick up a radio station from the Indian Reservation I was passing through. It is a very small and little known tribe so the station itself was a gem of a find.

They play just about every kind of music you can imagine, including native music, and even read a story tailored to the young-uns at a certain time of night.

I love it when that happens. Finding an out-of-the-way station like that when you're not even looking for it. Razz

I agree. College stations are sometimes like that. Depends on if the staff are passionate or just goof-offs. Also, some little towns have cool local stuff going on. Again, I think it's a personalities thing - if someone or a couple of people at the station are "into it" it creates a great local culture thing. Otherwise, it's just another robo-station.

Happens to me at times when driving out of the city, and you get the feeling that indeed there are people out there with a clear intention of giving meaning to radio. The more popular radio stations are mainly full of advertisements.
