For music, I like WJMK 104.3 Jack FM, a station with 80's music.
For talk, I prefer WIND, Newstalk 560 over WLS 890. WLS is too establishment Republican for me. Rush and Sean are there big hosts and while they're okay, they're too focused on DC and the national stage for me. They shy away from social issues.
Michael Savage is really good, but I think in a year or two he will burn out.
Sports, WMVP ESPN 1000 beats the heck out of WSCR, 670 the score. The score is too local for my taste.
