What were the radio stations of your youth that helped you on your music/audio journey?

I am older so my radio stations of influence were in their prime during the British invasion and many, many American singers and groups.  
The stations I listen to the most were WLS out of Chicago, KIOA out of Des Moines, KAAY out of Little Rock, Arkansas and KOMA  out of Oklahama.  When I was in the Air Froce I had a few stations near the main base I was stationed at outside of Rapid City, S.D.  
Of course systems and better and better systems and FM became the dominate source for broadcast/online music.  I did learn much of what I liked and eventually purchased through early radio listening.
I still listen to radio mainly for Jazz stations and NPR news. 

SF Bay Area

KSAN   SF  The best of all, free form. They would broadcast concerts
                    live from Winterland and the Record Plant in Sausilito. 
KOME  San Jose
KLIV     San Jose
KYA      SF 

Not a radio station but a Philadelphia program called Folklore with Gene Shay began in the mid 1960s on Sunday evenings although it moved from station to station over the decades. I aleays loved folk music and Gene was at the forefront of the genre often introducing later to be great performers before they ever recorded. How many of you knew about the duo Chuck and Joanie Mitchell and the list goes on and on.
College in Atlanta in early 80s. GT (Alma mater) WREK and GA State WRAS. And a high 80s or low 90s FM station in Tampa in the early 90s. Not really radio, but Radio Paradise in my (early) twilight years (now).
