THE MUSIC STATION
The Album Station is a locally-programmed station, broadcasting throughout the Champlain Valley and beyond, that has the freedom to play the music you want to hear, featuring over 6000 tracks of the best music from over the past 40 years.
The Album Station is what FM radio used to be known for: an alternative to top 40 chart-driven programming. We have one of the largest playlists in the country, because we play tracks many other stations have abandoned, due to corporate programming and market research surveys.
At The Album Station we combine familiar hits with album cuts, striking a balance between new and old rock songs, R & B, blues, folk and jazz. We showcase artists' creativity, exemplifying their particular skill or talent.
We favor cuts off albums you love, but haven't heard in years, going deeper into the less commercial tracks. We play music you want to hear that you won't hear anywhere else.
