Best online FM radio

Some of the best FM stations can be found at these websites.

Kcrw.com, a station based in Los Angeles, features a 9-to-noon weekday show called Morning Becomes Eclectic. The show, on the air for 32 years, recently has introduced listeners to such bands as Animal Collective and the Brakes.

Kexp.org began as a “10-watt station in 1972” in Seattle before helping to “inject grunge into the veins of the American music scene.” Today, the station spreads the word about smaller acts, such as Neko Case and the Walkmen, who are known to “swing by for in-studio sessions.”

Wfmu.org stands out in the New York area, where “radio recommendations are hard to come by.” One popular show, Mr. Fine Wine’s Downtown Soulville, offers up “ass-shaking funk and soul 45s” every Friday at 7 p.m.

Live105.com, a “West Coast institution” based in San Francisco, was playing “M.I.A. when you were still hung up on R.E.M.” Tune in today and find more “indie-rock discoveries than a talent scout for Sub Pop.”
