Choose who's the funnest, then choose who's the most informative, the channel with the best DJs, then your overall favorite... That DJ your day isn't complete without. It has to be the DJ of a music show, not a personality or talk show like Jason Ellis or Little Stevie.

My Picks:
Funnest DJ: Madison from Alt Nation
Most Informative: Dave Z from Cinemagic
Channel with Best DJs: Alt Nation
Best DJ: Even though there's a lot of talk, Jo Wiley from BBC Radio 1 has introduced me to a ton of great music over the past year or two.

My Picks:
Funnest DJ: I agree with you... it's Madison (except I listen to her on First Wave)

Most Informative: Pat St. John ('50s on 5, Deep Tracks)

Channel with Best DJs: Classic Vinyl, but I could have chosen a few channels here.

Best DJ: Mark Goodman (Rewind and '80s on 8).

My favorite all-around DJ is Vin Scelsa on The Loft. Most informative is Les Davis on Real Jazz. My favorite who is no longer on is Rick Allison from the now-defunct Sirius Disorder.

My favorite DJ's are Bob Thomas, and TJ, oh waite I'm sorry you did ask for "Best Current DJ's"

The Bridge is my "One to go to" and their are no DJ's on the Bridge I guess if time stood still or went back in time they would be my favorite

sorry :blush:

Ugh, you guys must be crazy! Madison is, without a doubt, the WORST dj I have EVER heard in my life! She's terrible. I love 1st Wave, but, man, I'll tell you what, sometimes it's difficult for me to listen to it during the day. I just can't stomach her. Not funny at all...she tries way too hard, and her voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

*sigh* okay, now that I got that out...hahaha.

Some people like her, some people don't. I love Madison on both 1st Wave and Alt Nation. She just rocks :flowers:

Speaking of DJs, didn't know I'd really miss this one till he was gone, but Cane has gone M.I.A. on Alt Nation. Great personality... Hope he's just on hiatus or vacation.

You know, I just noticed this myself about a week ago.

I know CANE is on OCTANE now. The gym I go to plays Octane all the time and I hear him on there.

I liked him on Alt Nation as this is my channel of choice for music. I also like Madison.

And, just to clarify, the CANE from Alt Nation and/or Octane IS the same Cane from the old CANE and CABBY days from KROCK in NY, right?

Yeah, I think so. Both Cane from Octane and Cabbie started out in the Minneapolis area.
