Best Commercial Radio San Francisco 2007 - KFOG

Readers' Choice: KFOG
KFOG turns 25 in the fall, and, like a reasonably hip adult of that same age, the traditionally freewheelin' rock radio station has eclectic musical tastes that both revel in old creature comforts (Fleetwood Mac) and dabble in new sonic challenges (Gnarls Barkley). Operated by Cumulus Broadcasting, there is a refreshing lack of song recycling compared to Clear Channel stations. There's also a sense of a history and a continuum that simply doesn't exist on many terrestrial radio stations that aren't on the extreme left hand of the dial. Even Rosalie Howarth's perennially popular Sunday programs, "Acoustic Sunrise" (7 a.m. to noon) and "Acoustic Sunset" (6 to 8 p.m.), feature an astute blend of '60s classics and modern innovators, from Hot Tuna to the Decemberists. And for those with a particular hankering for just the latest tunes, there's an additional online radio station in the "KFOG New Music Channel," which streams through the Web site.

Thank God for streaming radio!!!! I have been a Foghead for many, many years both when I was fortunate to be raised in the Bay Area and now while living and working in LA, I can listen to my favorite station via the internet.

KFOG is a radio station with a conscience - very rare these days.

KFOG keeps us connected to the Bay Area. We stream it at home and at work. When we are back home in SF several times a year, we listen in our rental car.

Keep it comin', KFOG!

And, what other station plays Smoke Two Joints by the Toyes to start off the weekend every Friday at 5:00? Great morning show with Dave Morey and co. too.

I highly agree and was very happy to see your article on KFOG...the MOST AWESOME radio station ever! I work at a high school, and even the KIDS come through while I'm streaming my KFOG and ask me what station that is. It even makes me cool in THEIR eyes, and that's not always easy! ;) All the area fogheads know what now all your readers know, and hopefully, they will jump on the FOG-wagon! Thank you so much for the declaration and agreeing with thousands of Fogheads!
