OK,

This is kind of off-topic, but I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with radio stations in Germany. I'm a big classical music fan and I thought it would be sweet to be slicing through the German back-roads and Autobahn listening to some cool classical station or wild German rock band! :rofl: I'll be bringing my own CD's but I was just curious if anyone took advantge of their radio whilst in Germany. For those who know, are there are English-speaking stations to be found around the Munich area? Danke...err...thank you!!

We listened to a bunch of random statiosn whilst in Germany/Italy. There seemed to be a mix of German and English music. I think you'll enjoy what you hear. The only problem is in the mountains the radio stations faded in and out so after a while we gave up and listened to CDs.

The only English radio I remember hearing was the AFN radio station being broadcast from all the US Army and Air Force bases...content was marginal at best.

I found some pretty good stations and used it as an opportunity to work on my German. I get really good at listening for what road the Stau was forming

You can get BFBS starting from mid Germany and all the way to the South.

Every state have at least one classical channel.

I got a bunch of these "BAYERN1", "BAYERN2", etc. stations on my RDS readout. Reception was iffy and what I heard certainly wasn't classical. But when are you ever going to listen to Bavarian music again?

I found a couple classical stations, the best were actually in the Czech Republic. I also think that just by scanning around you'll find some good music and pick up some of the language.
