I listen to a lot of classical music while studying, Liszt and Satie work wonders.

I hunted down a classical station the first time I took a road trip to a big city by myself. I was trying to find my way to IKEA in the rain and heavy traffic and for some reason I was determined to find my way there on gut instinct (I'd been there once before, but hadn't been driving). That music felt like the only reason I didn't freak right out when I took the wrong exit and got completely lost.

It's a really good memory. I'd like to find that station again.

Turn your radio on and scan...?

Yeah, I know how to look for radio stations, phi_

Smart ass.

I just never get in my car or drive anywhere, so it will take a while before I can accomplish this.

Yes but do you know how to look up songs that just played on the radio? :D

I found some cool songs using this, just plug in the station name!

I'm sorry. :'(

On a related note, UH radio usually has decent classical music on, plus you can stream their HD classical-only station!

Too bad it's probably one of the worst designed websites ever. *shrug*
