Here’s my personal list of car radio presets:

My presets are by no means a complete list of all of the amazing radio choices between Albany and New York City - the stations I have listed are limited by the number of presets on my car radio!

FM "A"

90.3 WAMC Northeast Public Radio - strong signal almost right into NYC

90.7 - WFUV (New York City) is Fordham University's 50,000-watt, non-commercial radio station, with studios on campus and its antenna atop nearby Montefiore Medical Center. Lots of great music - since a lot of the NPR programming is picked up by WNYC.

Moving up the Hudson Valley, WGXC is the "Community radio station" licensed to Acra, owned & operated by Free103point9. The station serves Greene and Columbia Counties, but I can listen almost all the way to Albany: There's a "Sound of Life" Christian radio station that cancels out WGXC about a mile before the Thuuway Exit 23 toll booths.

There's a NULL between WFUV and WGXC (depending on atmospheric conditions), although I have from time to time been able to listen to WFUV as far north as

By the way, kudos to WFUV's Rita Houston - honored as the Music Director of the Year for non-commercial stations on August 11 in Boulder CO.

92.3 WXRK / WFLY They switch command of the frequency in Ulster county

95.5 WPLJ / WYJB One covers the other around New Paltz

101.5 WPDH Based in Poughkeepsie with a repeater in Jeffersonville at 106.1
At the time I was doing my overnight radio show at Albany Broadcasting, Kricket was deejaying at Fly 92... just a little 'radio trivia' for ya!

103.1 WGJK Fox Radio out of Newburgh / (In the Albany area, WGY simulcasts on 103.1)

FM "B"

90.9 WCDB (Albany) / WAMK (Kingston)

91.5 WRPI (Troy) / WNYE (NYC)

93.5 WZCR (Hudson) /WVIP (New Rochelle)

97.1 WQHT - Hot97 (NYC) / WZRT (Rutland VT)

97.7 WEXT (Amsterdam) / WCZX (Hyde Park)

102.7 WEQX (Manchester VT) / WWFS (NYC)


710 WOR New York

770 WABC New York

810 WGY Schenectady

880 WCBS New York

900 YNN

1300 WGDJ Albany

I spend the most time on AM band when commuting - I hop over to FM "A" as well... FM "B" I tend to listen to late at night or on the weekends.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
