Found the coolest FREE streaming music station

This morning, by an act of sheer luck (clicked the wrong station), I have been enjoying the "Rock Breakouts" channel on Yahoo Music Launchcast. Basically, they play album deep cuts. For example, now they are playing Foo Fighter's Alone + Easy Target. Killer. They've played some deep cuts from Queen, Bad Company, ZZ Top, Soundgarden, AIC, etc.

Check it out. It's free, legal and awesome.

Nice! Good find, thanks. One that I enjoy a lot is Radio Paradise. It's also free, listener-supported, and they also let users upload their own songs for possible inclusion. www.radioparadise.com

Thanks. I bookmarked it. Station is now playing some Scorpions from Love at First Sting!! Some classic Heart and Bowie before that. I wish this station would accept that I don't like Cheap Trick though.

Thanks for the heads up. I have been listening for the last 2-3 days. Not sure what the deal is though, seems like whenever I skip songs it always keeps going and skips several good songs before stopping on Cheap Trick or Heart.

You keep getting alot of Cheap Trick too? They do seem to have a hard on for those guys. Do a consistent job of star rating the bands / tracks / albums. It does a pretty good job of getting you what you like.
