Liberal/Progressive Streaming Radio Suggestions?

Of course, XM Radio has channel 127.

However, does anyone have suggestions for streaming radio options besides podcasts? NPR is normally my go to, but looking for some other options, and Air America has been gone for quite some time.

1. Randi Rhodes is on you tube/Facebook monday thru fri

She is on at 2:00 mountain time. However, I subscribe to her podcast. Great up to the minute coverage on Trumpgate.

4. Depends on the time of day

It's mostly music and local happenings, but with a fair infusion of national politics and some serious environmental discussion prompted by the location. WOMR in Provincetown, Massachusetts, at the very tip of Cape Cod.

It's all run by volunteers who live in the area. I always put in a guest appearance at least once a year. Sometimes national figures stop by. I once brought in DFA's Jim Dean (Howard's brother) for a show. Low key, no pro DJs, but some of the local people have been doing shows on WOMR for decades now, and know what they're doing. If you've never been to that part of the country, it provides a unique glimpse into a very special place that is not similar to many others.

9. Unfortunately, They Don't Have it in SoCal...

...I could get XM, but that costs about $15 a month to get Channel 127.

6. If you are "streaming" why rule out podcasts?

I've stopped consuming any other form of media in my car, and except for music, pretty much anywhere else. There is just too much good stuff available to bother with other formats.

11. If you listen to channel 127 then listen to channel 126

Urban View - Joe Madison has a show on from 6 am - 10 am daily. He has an inside track to a number of members of Congress including Cummings, Waters (and others), and leaders like Perez -who all regularly appear on his show.
