This is not exactly a Policing post……yet it is. When we would transport a unruly prisoner at times we would turn on classical music because “Music calms the savage beast”
Here are some of my favorite online radio stations that listen to. I like WNED because it was the first classical radio station that I listened to. WBFO on the weekends plays the Blues which gave 9 hours of great Blues music. This was before Sirius FM and Amazon Music etc…
WQXR had a quality and sophistication to the music it played. It was different from WNED. Now I like its ALL Streams options. New Standards was the Jonathan Channel which was fabulous playing Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. I like WCPE at night it is truly the Classical Station. WCRB always plays easy and enjoyable classical music. I love to listen to it especially when I’m trying to read or study. It always seems to have on great music. Lastly I like the west coast time difference and the different vibe that comes from KUSC and CPR.
Feel free to comment on your favorite station.
