1040, usually in the afternoon on the way home from work (especially if I get off late; love the Ferraro segment).

The Zone 91.3 is generally my go-to station in the morning, but I'll jump to The Fox or The Wolf if there's a song I dislike on The Zone or the weather isn't co-operating with The Zone's signal.

Only AM, 98% of the time 1040, sometimes 980

About 10 years ago I worked as a delivery driver and one afternoon, not one, not two, but all three local "pop" stations had the same Britney Spears song on at the same time. FM radio died for me that day

Exact same thing happened to me with maroon 5 when I was back in 1998...

You must be into podcasts too by now?

I'm a old man now because I started listening to CBC Radio

88.1 FM

It's really good, I have learned a lot from it. It's pretty unbiased, and I've learned more about Canadian politics, east coast of Canada, and it's got very good interviews that are relevant and educational about Canada
Also, on the weekend, they have a lot of very good comedy programs on.

I really enjoy it a lot

1040 is the only radio station I listen to. Maybe 1130 when I'm on the road and want some traffic and current events.

Music on the radio sucks. It's probably 95% Taylor Swift. I'd much rather bluetooth my phone or tune into a streaming service like Songza or Rdio that isn't playing the same fucking songs over and over.

CBC radio. News and social discussions are for real men.

How do you guys stand sports radio. Its just loser hosts talking about how these millionaire athletes should be could be playing.

I don't listen to the radio. There's too many voices that tell me what to do

AM 730 for traffic almost every time im driving more than 10 mins. used to like 1040 until brojake came on in the morning and i fuckin hate him. otherwise big into cknw. i like to get my news, traffic and weather in morning, then i switch on to my tunes.

dont listen to FM radio cant remember the last time i did. if im at work in a vehicle and i cant use my phone, then CBC, they have some worthwhile programming and at least provide some entertainment

The only radio I listen to is < 5 mins in the mornin when my radio alarm goes off.

+1 for 88.1 CBC Radio.

Early Edition FTW.

Rick Cluff is my homie.

Everything else is podcast. If no good episodes then News1130.

AM730 because my commute sucks, Team1040 in the car and Team1050 at work, CBC, and NPR when I'm closer to the boarder.

i listened to NW and other "discussion" type radio a lot when i had more time, the way things are phrased and the callers who phone in are just as bad as the sports talk stations.

Mountain Phlegm and CBC is all we get in Squamish. But really, I don't listen to the radio. Too many ads, pointless banter and not enough music.

When I drive through Van, though, it's 93.7 JRFM. Mostly bro-country, but still good listening.

What's with the turds failing the guy for what might be his best, most legit thread? Fail stalkers...

For me, TSN1040 90% of the time, AM730 if I sense a traffic jam or 101.1 if I'm with the family as they can't stand AM radio At least then I get to listen to rock and not some top 40 BS.

When I'm in the wife's van... top 40 all day err day unless the kids aren't with us (rarely) then she has some pretty good rap tunes on her iPod which aren't kid friendly.

AM 1410 all day everyday when at my desk. I can't stand 1040, hate Brother Jake in the morning, I don't mind B-Mac and Donnie later but at that time I'm usually listening to Dan Patrick which I prefer. I find the American Sports guys cover every sport where 1040 is only talking about Canucks and Lions, only so much I can listen to that before wanting to drive a penicl through my ear.

I used to listen to 1040 in the AM until 9 but once Bro Jake got on board I was all out. I refuse to listen to that toolbag, my 9 year old knows more about sports then he does.

I usually flip between 99.3 and 102.7. CFOX is the only thing on in my car in the mornings (the Jeff O'Neil show is awesome), and I listen to The Peak in the afternoon mostly, either that or I play music from my phone.

Not a huge AM fan because I like listening to music, but whenever I do have it on I listen to 1040 or 1410.

used to love Jim Rome but he gets old, stopped listening after daily for about 2 years. Some of the best interviews i've ever heard in any medium though, the guy can really host
