: I guess I'm just looking to complain about WMMM. This station squanders its potential so regularly by repeating itself with songs not worth hearing once in a while.
: I guess I just want a station that thinks a little more progressive and thinks a little harder about the music people like to listen to and how often they want to hear the same songs.
I'm with ya! I listen to MMM for the few minutes I'm in my car each day, but wouldn't bother listening to them at work. I like mainstream AAA so Triple M should be right in my wheelhouse, but they play too many oldies too often for my taste. I think someone else mentioned MPR's "the Current," which is a little too eclectic for me, but the following stations are all commercial-free public radio options with nice online streams. I listen to all of them fairly regularly.
* WNRN, Charlottesville, VA. Kinda a cross between alternative and adult alternative -- from 10am to midnight weekdays. http://www.wnrn.rlc.net/
* WXRY, Columbia, SC. Somewhere between Alternative, AAA and Hot AC. http://wxryfm.org/
* KTBG, Kansas City, MO. AAA. Like Triple M, they can be a bit heavy on the oldies, but they make up for it by breaking a lot more new music a lot earlier than Triple M. And the top of the hour NPR news is nice, too. http://ktbg.fm
KTCL from Denver's also a great Alternative station to listen to online. And WLUM, Milwaukee has a great music mix, just too bad the sound quality of their online stream is so poor.
