Tucson Radio People: Give Me a "Classic Jams" Station to Listen To

Posted By on Thu, Dec 1, 2011 at 3:00 PM

For some reason, Tucson has two radio stations playing mostly the same R&B and hip-hop tracks, two playing a slightly more youthful take on adult contemporary, two classic rock stations, and a couple conservative talk stations on FM now. However, what Tucson does not have is a retro hip-hop station and while I'm ignoring whether there's actually an audience for such a thing, this city would be a better place to live if it did.

I've been using the TuneIn iPhone app, which suggests radio stations from around the world based on most listened to tracks on your iPhone, and thanks to the fact that I never seem to take off my personal Outkast greatest hits playlist off iTunes, the app suggested I check out Yo! 107.1 Classic Jams, a locally owned radio station in Montgomery, Alabama.

While there are a few clunkers in their playlist — no one needs to hear "Ice Ice Baby" ever again, I assume — the station is the most reliably great radio station I've heard in ages.

Here's a selection of what they played yesterday:

H-Town, people! This city could use a more reliable way to listen to "Knockin' Da Boots", right? Who's with me?
