Blues and Jazz on Radio

One thing in Detroit, we have good music on the radio thanks to WDET. You can listen to blues (right now, 10am - noon on Saturdays) and Jazz (evenings weeknights, 8-10pm) and lots of eclectic stuff all weekend (Sunday 10am to noon is fantastic). You can listen at http://www.wdetfm.org/

Any other great stations out there? KCRW comes to mind...

I suggest those who enjoy jazz listen to WDET weeknights from 7-0. Ed Love, the DJ knew or knows all the big players. He is an amazing DJ, he is very funny during the fund raisers, even.
