I hate the FM transmitters in cars. too far away from the antenna to really take over the signal.

They certainly can be fussy. Gotta find the sweet spot.

the sweet spot: cracking open the case, unspooling the wiring, and undoing what the manufacturer was required by the FCC. boost the signal, and you never hear static, and can broadcast to other cars in your lane if they tune in.

My 3 favorites are wfmu.org, wxyc.org, and wcbn.org. WFMU, especially.
All 3 are freeform, so occasionally you will encounter some monumentally terrible music. (But no ads.) The high points far outnumber the low. If you have an airport express wireless hub, it's a cinch to pipe it through an audio system.

well of course if I go online I find decent music.

I'm speaking about the terrible selection of terrestrial radio in Madison.

WMMM just said they're doing a "deep cut weekend" and then followed with "Pink Cadillac"

Maybe their idea of a deep cut is different from mine.
