Here's mine. Dig Jazz at http://www.abc.net.au/dig/jazz/
Our excellent public broadcaster here in Australia provides some great radio and television services and Dig Jazz is nearly always pumping out of my computer or my television (where it is also available via the digital box).

Though not strictly jazz, the companion station Dig Radio at http://www.abc.net.au/dig/ is also a great station with a nice "adult" mix of music.

Well, prior to four-five years ago I would have proudly jumped to promote 91.9 WFPK Radio Louisville. But then Dan Reed moved in with his AAA garbage and insurgent mission to beat down jazz and completely reformat the station, turning it into a sort of publicly-supported commercial radio station with preprogrammed playlists and whatnot (can't remember the name for that technology). There was a big dust-up over trying to save the jazz programming, bumper stickers, billboards, editorials. And all this just after Phil Bailey had died, it was a disgrace and I still don't forgive them.

Well, yadda yadda, it's still hanging on, though relegated to 1am (Eastern) on weeknights—the syndicated "Jazz with Bob Parlocha"—and 6am-5pm Sundays which does include some local programming (Natalie Boeyink, John LaBarbera, Dick Sisto, Mark Bacon).

Here's a little more info, if anyone happens to be interested. The original rescuejazz.com site is down now, but I found this old blog thing:
http://rescuejazz.blogspot.com/2004_01_01_archive.html

I admit to not having read it all as of yet, but hey.

Forgot to mention as well that also still surviving on WFPK is "Woody's Roadhouse." It's not jazz, but a fun show nonetheless. Friday & Saturday nights, starting at midnight (Eastern US).

Forgot to mention that our college radio station is all jazz from
5 am to 10 pm, seven days a week. It's alternative after 10 pm.
They also have an audio archive. They sponsor concerts and have a
program called growing jazz for students.
It's a great station all around.

I recently picked up one of these Sangean digital radio receivers:

It's pretty cool and can apparently give you access to up to 16000 radio stations. I've found some very cool Jazz stations on the internet. Inside Jazz is a pretty awesome - it's all live Jazz - I spend most of my time on the Fusion sub-station.
