Best Radio Station Houston 2004 -
Readers' Choice: KPFT/90.1 FM
KPFT/90.1 FM It's tempting to play the contrarian and give this award to some other spot on the dial, but KPFT is simply the best station in town. No other station has as much variety; blues, zydeco, rock en espa?ol, jazz, several forms of rock, world music, old-school Tejano and hip-hop all vie for space in the KPFT weekly schedule, not to mention some good, some bad and some ugly current-affairs programming. While the commercial stations all aim for the lowest common denominator, KPFT tries the opposite approach, and if the results are sometimes maddening, much of the time it's pretty damn good.
