Lmao there is one in town that is super local but it's like The Crappiest Hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
I only listen to the radio in the car but metro detroit radio stations that are my favorite:
93.9 The River - They play a combination of some oldies and some newer adult alternative music.
93.1 Doug FM - their catch phrase is "we play everything" but it's mostly the oldies. Looking at their website right now: ZZ Top, Billy Idol, The Cure, REO Speedwagon (ick), Jimmy Buffet, Paul McCartney, Hanging By a Moment by Lifehouse
88.7 "89X" - It's actually based in Windsor, Ontario but I think they have a station near Detroit so we get it too. They play current and recent alternative music.
97.9 WJLB - This is the station that plays primarily current rap music. I am not always that interested in it, but at night they have Quiet Storm music. When I had an alarm clock radio I used to always fall asleep with it on. It's like late night mellow R&B and slow songs.
