The Ultimate Guide to Bay Area Radio

You can count on radio stations to change hands or formats sooner or later, so we cannot guarantee this directory is up-to-date at all times.  We have expanded our listing to include digital channels (click on Home for more details on digital HD radio).  Since some radio stations simulcast on digital television, we have also added the channel for the one that’s free on terrestrial TV and the cable channels for the 30 local stations that may be available to all subscribers in the Bay Area (check with your cable TV company).  See Bay Area Radio Airplay for our compilation of real-time playlists (you may notice a slight delay when this page loads).  You’ll find some programming information at Bay Area Radio Shows.

[See Reviews of Bay Area Radio Stations]

When we first published this radio guide in the early 2000s, more than a few music stations did not provide live streaming or a real-time playlist for financial and technical reasons.  As these features have become the norm (though you may have to go to third-party sites for airplay archives in some cases), it’s no longer necessary to track their progress here.  So let us know what differentiating Web factors we should document next (Facebook likes?).

Directory Legend

 

Directory Legend

We have divided the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area into seven locally recognized regions.

  • San Francisco (San Francisco Co.)
  • East Bay (Alameda and Contra Costa Co.)
  • Silicon Valley/South Bay (Santa Clara Co.)
  • Peninsula (San Mateo Co.)
  • Wine Country (Sonoma and Napa Co.)
  • North Bay (Marin Co.)
  • Delta-Suisun Bay (Solano Co.)

Note that the most powerful Bay Area radio stations’ frequencies are in boldface.  The physical locations of the weakest radio stations are listed for your convenience.  Also highlighted are the call letters of local commercial stations (for-profit operations based in California)—excluding translators, repeaters, and boosters.

Range:  Maximum signal strength for clear reception; FM radio range largely determined by power and elevation of transmitter (based on Jeffrey Dingle’s “Essential Radio”):

  • S0:  Under 10 miles
  • S1:  10-15 miles
  • S2:  15-25 miles
  • S3:  30-50 miles
  • S4:  50-80 miles

Owner/parent company:  Note that in the case of a leased frequency, we list the actual broadcaster instead of the owner of the frequency.
