    Man. That's tight. Yakima is in the worst area possible in the state as far as radio is concerned. Ideal for travelling the state, but the tradeoff is zero access to big market radio.

    Yes, I just started streaming KISW

    We had a metal show called "Metal Shop" back in the 90's, they may still be running that. It was on late over the weekend w/Belinda Simmons but I doubt she'd still be hosting that.

    We used to have a complete wild card that was the local tech school station and students did whatever the fuck they wanted. Could run into anything from green apple quick step to slayer. Had a few buddies that were taking the class in high school and getting airtime.

    Was gonna say Animals by Pink Floyd, but Shiggityshwo beat me to it. That's my favorite album for long drives.

    I'll put this one up for one of the greatest prog albums of all time. Steven Wilson- The Raven That Refused to Sing.

    Some off the top of my head. Tried to think of only things that are comprehensively good from start to finish, not necessarily my favorite bands or albums that include some of my favorite individual songs

    One of these things is not like the other...the songs on that Arctic Monkeys album all sound the same to me. Though it's one hell of a sound as crystallized in the song "do I wanna know" (and video)

    so the more i listen to this album the more i like it. it has like 20-something songs and a lot of them are weird, but it is really one of the most original albums ive ever heard.

    i didnt know who terry allen was until sturgill simpson covered one of his songs a year or two ago
