    FWIW I try to avoid listening to live radio. Too scary
    If I am sat at my desk crafting I usually listen to an itunes radio station, usually from America, and usually golden oldies, and usually with a cup of tea
    Alucard,

    you are WAY too young to be tuning into Golden Oldies

        I listen to Brookdale Radio, 90.5 The Night, an NPR station that plays rock and pop here in Monmouth County, NJ.

        There are no words I look more forward to than, "This is NPR News, I'm Lakshmi Singh."

          Depends on what their message is like. In the 80'ies there was one sea-pirate left on the Nordsea in Europe, Radio Monique, who got financial support from a church in a Beverly Hills alike village. So guess if there was any difference with most other pirates (who's talk discloses where the money is floating from).

          Or say Indymedia; how independant and well-balanced is their news?

          A weird hacker mate of me, who more recently on court order had to discontinue hosting supply to the pirate bay, once had a marvelous idea: put digital AM transmitters on Sealand... that would have been the ultimate broadcast setup, with -since AM seems to bounce- from that location probably a far better reach than anything else - but digital!

          But generalizing I think pirate radio is the least evil biased media.

            There have been several such schemes in the recent past to purchase Sealand, or host servers there to secure data against government intrusion.

            The current "royal family" of Sealand got their start by occupying the platform to broadcast pirate radio to Britain.

              I'm not stuck up I just hate TV. It creates a world of sheep.

              That is often true. I frequently work 12 hour days or longer. Then there is always something that needs fixing or someone calling to rattle my brain...

And Fox news slaughters all other cable news on a regular basis.
              Scariest thing I have read online to date.

                For the record I do like some PBS TV shows but I can't remember the last time I watched one.
