So I went down to Virginia last weekend for a friend's wedding. Because I had gone to college in Virginia, I remembered the way easily. I also remembered why I loved making the trip down, even though it takes about 6 hours to get from Jersey to VA.

What I remembered was the hour to hour and a half of listening to my favorite out of state radio station in the country. I have lived in CA, NV, NJ, and VA. But nothing beats this radio station for my pure enjoyment of almost every song they play. So here is my favorite station:

DC 101 out of Washington, DC: This is at 101.1 and is a modern/alternative rock station. Like I said, I love almost every song they play. They do play a mix of older and newer rock songs, but they never get too old in their playing of older songs (i.e. no Depeche Mode). The time that I spend with DC 101 makes me wish I lived near DC.

Back in the day this station would also have a show called Seven sides at Seven on Sunday nights where they would play the first seven songs of an album from a band (one time it was Pearl Jam's first album...good times). I don't even know how they got the rights to playing songs that were never released as singles.

Honorable mention: HFS out of Baltimore. I would also get this station during my trip to VA, and if DC 101 went to commercials then I would head over to 99.3. They are similar to DC, so I get almost the same satisfaction out of this station.

So, when any of you travel out of the state you live, do you have a favorite station to listen to? Do you perhaps use the Internet to listen to a different station not in your market?

One other question for anyone with satellite radio: Can you use satellite radio to listen to a specific radio station out of your market? If so, I would seriously consider getting radio to listen to DC and HFS.

Radio stations don`t need "the rights" to play album cuts, they can play whatever they want. That doesn`t mean they DO that, but they can.

That`s not how it works. Satellite radio only broadcast their own stations (there are hundreds of possible choices) but you only get the XM or Sirius stations. I believe there might be some syndicated stuff on there, maybe some ESPN radio content? But not specific stations owned by other companies.

I`m not sure if DC101 is still streaming online. As of last fall they were.

95X out of Midland, TX used to be the BEST station. They were like a glorified college station, in which they'd give anything that they recieved at least a few spins, and several unsigned/signed but wasted bands developed quite a local following.

Then, they sold to a small time commercial company. Soon, the music was all generalized. They took out all the metal, all the unknown stuff, and the station went completely down the shitter.

Hate to be nit-picky, but the stations do have to pay ASCAP/BMI money...and we still need permission for things like "bootleg" recordings...so, technically it's not "whatever" we want. Album cuts are OK, provided the rights fees are paid...

The EDGE 102.1fm in Toronto gets my vote. I used to listen to it when I lived there, and get the feed over the Internet. They were possibly the first "real alternative" station here in Canada, and Alan Cross' "The Ongoing History of New Music" program is one of the best radio shows out there.

Yes that is true. But you don`t need advance permission to play, say, Foo Fighters` Disenchanted Lullabye, just because it hasn`t been pushed as an official single. Which is what I was explaining.

I loved that station in the mid 90s even late 90s but it really went to hell in the last 3 to 5 years. There music to commercials/ traffic reports/ stupid contests & gimmicks ratio is absurd. They play the same 15 songs over and over again, you get 1 if lucky 2 songs that aren't in heavy rotation an hour (when their not playing ads). It was great but now it's pretty much unlistenable to me.

But I do like the History of New Music show and their weekends late night commercial free, which they play a lot more diversity of music and retro night on Sundays.

For me it was KPOA out of Maui - island jams - the time difference from there back to NJ meant that I could listen to the overnight show while sitting at my desk at work - then free internet access ended and there went that station.
