In emergency situations, we need to resuscitate the radio.

For those times when my iPod dies or I can’t access fratmusic.com via laptop, I turn to the radio. Especially in the car, that mix CD I made gets a little overplayed.  Sometimes I forgot that essentially an entire playlist of songs shuffled by genre awaits me at the push of a button. I know most of the stations in my hometown, but for some reason, I never got around to learning them here in Syracuse. For those of you in the same boat, I did a little research. Listed below are the radio stations in Syracuse worthy of your attention:

WJPZ 89.1 FM Top 40 with broadcasts by Syracuse University students

WNTQ 93.1 Top 40 with two slightly annoying main Deejays. They provide Syracuse news and weather, though.

WYYY 94.5 70s, 80s, and 90s Because who doesn’t love throwbacks?

WAQX 95.7 Rock I heard Nickelback … but some people like him, right?

WTKW 99.5 A little static-y at times but complete with the Doors and Led Zeppelin.

WKRL 100.9 Alternative stations that features 30 Seconds to Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Papa Roach

WWHT 107.9 Top 40 with a little more variety and a lot of Lil’ Wayne

WERW 1570 AM “Real College Radio”
