I listen to www.live365.com at work.  An amazing number of people program their "own" streaming stations with their music preferences.  You can search for stations playing music for your daily need, or listen to recommended new ones.  I've found no MO-dedicated stations, but there are some really cool music programmers out there.

    Streaming radio from KGSR.com.  It offers a bit more eclectic fare than your typical Top 40 rock station and it was the only place in town that played the played the oils over the course of their last few albums.

  I like to stream or listen to WZBC - Boston College Radio and WMBR at MIT (not streamed).  Both are eclectic and odd at times, but way better than commercial radio can muster and THEY DONT TALK TOO MUCH!  Both are known to play the Oils and I once noticed that ZBC was playing some Blue Album and Head Injuries in with a mix of surf and psychadelia one morning.  Sweet.

  My favorite program on 'ZBC is "Psychotic Reactions" - obscure garage band vinyl from the late 60's and early 70's.  Not the interminably wanking guitar hero stuff of the early 70's, but the raw early-Who-ish and innovative sounds that I think of as a goddaddy to the Oils music.  It can be streamed Wednesdays at 5pm EST (22:00 GMT) from www.zbconline.org  You can check out the playlists from earlier shows too!  Sometimes DJ Pip is in house the afternoon before his show and he plays similar stuff, but less chonologically defined (new stuff, elvis, etc.) and dips into his live Sex Pistols collection too.

  Anyone else got a fave streamed programme?  Lets share (and remember to reference UST or GMT hours so we can listen in from around the globe).
