Best Non-commercial Radio Station BOA Award Winner

WRFG Radio
Though we bitch about Clear Channel ruining the airwaves, truth is, Atlanta's pretty lucky when it comes to radio choice. But even with the handful of college and public stations to balance out the payola free-for-all on the right side of the dial, local radio's ace in the hole has got to be WRFG 89.3more...
Though we bitch about Clear Channel ruining the airwaves, truth is, Atlanta's pretty lucky when it comes to radio choice. But even with the handful of college and public stations to balance out the payola free-for-all on the right side of the dial, local radio's ace in the hole has got to be WRFG 89.3 FM otherwise known as "Radio Free Georgia." Not paid for by record companies - not even funded by a school or bolstered by NPR - the station is truly local, grassroots and by-the-shoestrings like so few things in life are anymore. And with a program schedule offering everything from drive-time blues to underground hip-hop, regional bluegrass to currents in Caribbean and Celtic sounds - as well as good ol' fashioned lefty-slanted news - 'RFG is a resource to cherish.

The pride of Georgia State University, this freeform station features a very broad mix of music, drawn from a wild assortment of styles and a wider assortment of eras. The latest disc from a chart-topping major label act is treated here on equal terms with that fresh-minted three- song demo by a talented but unknown local band. From pop classics to modern jazz, from big-band swing to punk rock, you hear it all on WRAS. less...

For years WRFG has been the only true alternative radio station in the city, but in-house politics often clouded the vision of the liberal and very left-of-center format. Recent managerial changes seem to have had a positive effect on both the programming and the attitude of the air shifters. For the first time in quite a while they seem to be having fun again, even though it's a labor of love for the volunteer jocks. The musical mix is simply amazing, from Celtic to reggae to western swing to newgrass, with plenty of jazz, blues and folk spread throughout, guaranteed to keep everybody happy. less...
