Radio Swiss Classic in Berne, Switzerland is my favorite station. They stream music 24/7 with very little interruption. They also have Radio Swiss Jazz. I think the station is state owned. You have your choice to listen in either French, German, Italian, or English. Not a day goes by without me listening to this station, especially when browsing the Internet.

SWISS JAZZ !  Now that must be interesting!

Let me recommend WDPR out of Dayton, which has a very good selection of things: I have heard them program Pierre Boulez with no apologies!  ;)

Then we'll just have to beat an apology out of them!   >:D

I believe that program also offered Penderecki and a host of others in the same club!

I recently moved from Southern California to Phoenix, AZ and we do have a decent classical station, but the playlist can get repetitive.

Here are three American streaming stations that tend to be live, 100% classical and seem to have extensive libraries.

http://www.kmfa.org/ out of Austin, TX
https://www.kcme.org/ out of Colorado Springs, CO
and: https://www.wdav.org/ out of Davidson, NC


Out of Europe, I like:

http://www.radioswissclassic.ch/en/  which is the public station from Switzerland

and BBC Radio 3: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_three


A hidden gem might be WMNR from Monroe, CT, (www.wmnr.org) who has a variety of volunteer hosts on weekdays who apparently bring in their own CD's and LP's.

The Palazzetto Bru-Zane foundation has its own internet radio

http://classicalradio.bru-zane.com/live/player/

Lots of wonderful music.
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

I created www.classicalconcertsonline.com to keep track of all the symphonic concerts that get broadcast online. Hopefully others find the information helpful.
