Preprogram these stations so you're ready to hit the road (with tunes) at any time.

Portland

KBOO 90.7

Gotta love the indie spirit: The station once offered to ban “Stairway to Heaven” in return for a hefty pledge drive donation—and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin immediately paid up.

Bend

KOAB 91.3

As one of Oregon Public Broadcasting’s stations, they share whip-smart local reporting alongside syndicated shows from NPR and other public radio entities.

Spokane

KZZU 92.9

For a break from the region’s plethora of country radio, rely on the longtime pop provider for jams of the Kanye and Demi Lovato variety.

Tri-Cities

94.9 KIOK

The wide open spaces of Eastern Washington are ideal for the catchy, uncomplicated beats of modern country music.

Vancouver

CKPK 102.7

Alternative classics—your Weezers, your Radioheads—blend with Canuck flavors like the Tragically Hip and the Sheepdogs.
