I am addicted to the radio. I have been a radio addict since first grade, when I tore the transistor radio out of the belly of my sister's toy stuffed dog. 50 years later, I still own a pocket AM/FM radio that I use daily. But, thanks to the internet, I often have a major league baseball game, talk radio, and jazz music, playing as a mashup. Rochester, NY is a great radio town, with a long history with ties to George Eastman, a topic I will post more about in the future. A taste of that Rochester radio history is found on this page, in the photo on the right and videos below.

I placed the Rochester, NY radio station links at the top of this page for your convenience. On the right you will find more links for Rochester radio stations, plus some of my favourite news, talk, sports, and weather radio stations from around the USA and the world. You will also find links for radio software, such as my favourite Winamp, a gem for playing .mp3 and .m3u formats, and links to web sites with radio station links. Be sure to check out Rochester's three .edu alternative format radio stations, the world leader since 1985 WBER, plus WITR and WRUR, but trust me, WBER is the ONE!
