I feel so late in the game on this one but last week I discovered KDHX 88.1 FM. Consider me blown away. In only a week's time it has become one of my favorite stations EV-er.
Just to give you a little taste of the musical kaleidoscope I've been enjoying, consider this... Saturday night they played just Reggae for at least an hour. On my way home from work the other day - Bluegrass. Almost any other time I've been listening - Indie Rock. But there are other programs I just haven't caught yet. Keep in mind this isn't just random crappy stuff. Almost everything I've heard has been a gem. Wait... Here maybe I can visualize this with this handy graph.
It's public radio at it's finest. The DJ's bring their own music in and can play whatever they want. No musical taste goes unnurtured. I now desperately want to DJ at this station. Who's up for an hour straight of bands that feature the Bass Clarinet? I know I am!
In the meantime I'm seriously considering volunteering for them. They are looking for a video editor and guess who graduated from film school with a concentration in editing? Nope, it's me! I thought it seemed obvious but in all fairness I wouldn't have guessed me either.
I know it's early, but I'm almost ready to declare KDHX the best FM station I've ever heard. Screw it. I just made it official. Best station ever. Just listen...
