Yes, Pandora follows you wherever you go, but if you’re listening to good old fashioned radio, there are a few gems of radio stations in upstate New York. It’s all subjective, of course, but here are some of our favorite radio destinations.

If you’e a fan of Americana (or listen to WFUV when you’re in southern NY), classic rock and the occasional local talk show, check out Radio Woodstock, 100.1. You can even hear some Upstater writers chatting about the site.

WKZE, 98.1, out of Red Hook promises musical diversity. Check out their playlists for proof.

WHDD, 103.3, — AKA Robinhood Radio– is a good NPR alternative. It’s got some of the familiar NPR shows, plus everything from classical music to dog talk. Their motto: “slightly off but very good.”

    WGXC 90.7 Greene and Columbia (thus the GXC)

    A storefront studio in Catskill, another in Hudson. A real.community radio station.

  4. WJFF in Jeffersonville NY (Sullivan County) is a long time quirky little community radio station.

    WFUV broadcasts out of Fordham (90.7) AND off the tower on Beacon Mtn (94.5)

    WVKR (Vassar Radio) at 91.3

    These are the stations where you get an education in music!
