You can drown in recycled pop and talk radio in Mexico City, or you can find refuge tucked away in corners on the dial or online, mixing new national and foreign rock and electro with tasty old hits, in the manner of Viva-Radio and other such players.
The mainstay of course is the radio station Reactor, still setting the standard for good new music and shows in D.F. You can listen to their programming live online. Farther down the dial is Radio Ibero, an excellent college radio station in Mexico City because it doesn't air commercial advertising and mostly just plays music. The station is based out of the communications department at Universidad Iberoamericana in Santa Fe. Their clean and simple playlist page is updated live. Content coordinator Leticia Santos tells me Ibero 90.9-FM has been on air since March 2003. More than 100 Ibero students and academics collaborate to run the station, she said.
