My Morning Commute with the New MeTV-FM

I usually don't post about rival radio stations.  But, hey, I love music and you gotta give credit where credit is due.  To be honest, I don't much listen to terrestrial radio anymore. On my rather long commute, I usually listen to SiriusXM or my iPod.  However, there is a new radio station in town and it is awesome.

That radio station is MeTV-FM in Chicago (87.7).

This radio station is much like Vinyl Voyage Radio, actually.  Deep tracks.  Obscure and rarely heard hits from the 60s, 70s and early 80s.  Most terrestrial radio stations have limited playlists and often repeat the same songs ad nauseam.  I used to like Mumford and Sons---until I heard the same song every hour.  MeTV-FM is taking a different approach. Their playlist is huge and very deep. Songs that haven't played on the radio in decades are now getting airtime. And it is refreshing.

I decided to record my morning drive on April 6, 2015 to sample what MeTV-FM was offering that morning.  And they did not disappoint.  On the drive I listened to Marvin Gaye, the Beatles, John Denver and Christopher Cross, just to name a few.

Perhaps MeTV-FM is the first station in town to recognize that the competition is not other terrestrial radio stations, but internet radio--- mainly Pandora and Spotify. And they created their station to emulate the variety that internet stations offer.  And it is working.

So if you can't listen to Vinyl Voyage in the car (and you live in the Chicago area), give MeTV-FM a try.  You won't be disappointed.

From 6:30 to about 7:15, here are the songs played on MeTV-FM on April 6, 2014:

Supremes-"Come See About Me" 1964
Kenny Rankin-"Penny Lane" 1974
Smokey Robinson-"Cruisin'" 1979
John Travolta and Olivia Newton John-"You're the One That I Want"  1978
Bobby Vee-"Take Good Care of My Baby" 1961
Beau Brummels-"Laugh Laugh" 1965
Christopher Cross-"Sailing" 1979
Billy Joel-"Uptown Girl" 1983
John Denver-"Rocky Mountain High" 1975
Beatles-"You're Gonna Lose That Girl" 1965
Marvin Gaye-"Let's Get It On" 1973
Jackson Browne-"Doctor My Eyes" 1972
Cowsills-"Hair" 1969
JR. Walker and the All Stars-"What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)" 1969
