Radio Station Discs!

Aloha,

I just got my "KFOG Live From The Archives Volume 12" in the mail and it made me wonder what I might be missing.

KFOG is a San Francisco area radio station that releases an annual compilation disc of cuts by various artists who performed in the studio in the preceding year.

The Fi is quite Hi.

I also search out the WRXT (Chicago?), WXPN (Philadelphia), KGSR (Austin), and a Denver area station who's name escapes me right now - Live on the Mountain?

In general these discs have great sound and provide cool alternate cuts of songs.

I'd recommend them almost in toto!

So, anyone know of any other stations out there that are releasing these yearly discs?

They may, as you say, offer great sound, but since you mention WXRT in Chicago, I wonder about the content. XRT is the Chicago outlet for so-called "light rock" - niether fish nor fowl. They avoid admitting that it is basically elevator music. I know nothing of the other sources you list, but I doubt that you'll get much music you'll enjoy from that one.

I've been listening to the enemy!

Seriously, though...

From Volume 7: Bold titles = "light rock"? I plead guilty, then.
