Best Way to Keep Your Southbound Frequency Modulated

KVRX/KOOP 91.7FM to KTSW 89.9FM to KSYM 90.1FM

Make your southbound drive corporate-free and brain-sane: Keep it locked on college and community frequencies all the way to San Antone. Start off in Austin at your No. 1 preset, KVRX/KOOP 91.7FM, and hear community talk and free-form programming during the day and college craziness at night. Once you hit Kyle, the signal starts to fade, so keep one of your B-tier presets locked on 89.9FM, and switch it over to KTSW, student radio for Texas State to enjoy indie rock, Bobcat-style. Then, once you get south of New Braunfels, when that signal starts to fade again, hit 90.1FM, and check in with the kids at San Antonio College's KSYM. Traffic is stressful enough. Let these alternative radio stations keep you tuned into sanity.
