I drive a taxi. I drive 11 hour shifts. That’s a lot of time in a car. I need something for my brain to do. Passengers only talk so much, and this time of year is quite slow. Often I don’t have a passenger to talk to anyway.
I listen to a lot of radio. A lot of radio — 44 hours per week. By default I’ve been given quite an introduction to the local radio market in San Francisco.
I’ve been very impressed with all of these, but I’ve been especially impressed with “Pure Dance” 92.7 KNGY. Regardless of your personal opinion of dance/electronica music, this station is a genre buster — it’s a one of a kind. It makes me happy to see unique genre radio stations thrive, especially as iPods and online music makes audio consumption much more personal and radio stations less relevant.
Others seem to like this format too — Wikipedia says KNGY is the most listened to dance/electronic station on the west coast. (Hmm, I wonder how many other dance/electronic stations even exist on the west coast?)
