Since I’ve been working from home, I can now flood my basement office with music. My favorite work music is jazz, and there are a few good stations out there I can get using the Tunein Radio app, especially since Cleveland has no dedicated jazz station for some weird reason.
Among them are WNNO New Orleans, WZUM Pittsburgh( @mrmickeysmom , I’m jealous), KUVO Denver, and KRTU San Antonio.
And, when I’m in the mood for Celtic music, which is often, there’s WGBH Boston’s Celtic Sojourn.
Please feel free to share what you like; I’ll probably check them out.

Though I haven’t found a jazz station as good as the part-time jazz on our college and NPR stations in the 70’s, the best I’ve found recently is
KSDS in San Diego, and I listen via streaming.
It seems to have been around a long time and not afraid to play the classics;
Oh, our local non-commercial powerhouse KDHX is not primarily jazz but has a new show of very old music (ragtime, “pre-War” jazz) on Tuesday mornings and on Tues. afternoons is Howzit Bayou, a supposedly Louisiana based program but the DJ is the son of a founder of the St. Louis Ragtimers band and knows his Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, all of that backwards and forwards.

Kdfc.com They turned from a commercial station to a public station several years ago and took over a local spot on the dial with antennas on Mt St Helena. About half their announcers are women. Good music, good programming and good, knowledgeable announcers. I tune into their stream when I have to concentrate on a job. It’s always on in my car. (And this is why I fail at @pam2 trivia music quizzes.)

They have about 30 channels of music. Probably covers just about any genre of music you might want to listen to. And no commercials. And though we’re past the Helliday season now, their Xmas channels are better than any of that “North Pole Radio” crap

There are different streaming rates up above 320kbs mp3. It is truly almost CD quality. No commercials, all is listener supported.
As mentioned above, SOMA FM has a number of stations which are great.

Groove Salad, Seven Inch Soul, Sonic Universe, which has a lot of progressive Jazz, plus some others, are bookmarked within Winamp.
But you can stream directly from the site using their player, or whatever you have installed.
