Best Non-Commercial Station: Radio Free Georgia, WRFG-FM (89.3)

Staff Pick

Back when RADIO FREE GEORGIA, WRFG-FM (89.3), went on the air in 1973, people who listened were like a secret society. The signal didn’t go far outside the perimeter — of Little Five Points, that is — and the uninitiated usually discovered the station by channel-surfing or from a friend in the know: “Hey, have you checked out Radio Free Georgia?” Even the station’s name suggests its counterculture leanings. WRFG has the most eclectic playlist in Atlanta: blues, Zydeco, Americana, bluegrass, music from India, doo-wop, jazz, Latin and hip-hop. Today, Radio Free Georgia broadcasts at 100,000 watts, but it’s remained true to its roots of playing the kind of music you’ll never hear on commercial radio.
