    Love the video explaining what is going on with all the “Q101 is coming back to 101.1FM” junk that I have been hearing. I needed to have everything cleared up. I moved to Minneapolis in 2008 and have been listening to Q101 online and streaming ever since. They just don’t have a great radio station up here in “Canada”. I was sad to hear that it was going off the air a few years ago. I often listen to streaming while I am working in the garage or at work all day every day since it became available. Keep up the fight and I will continue to brag about “Chicago’s Alternative” to all my new local friends because it is in fact the best radio station in my lifetime.

    Thank goodness you returned to your roots are playing decent ‘alternative’ music. Now you are actually a decent alternative to streaming some BBC stations. Cheers.

  3. Monika says:

    Love Q101, always have but you have stopped playing the harder stuff, Metallica, disturbed, cradle of filth, etc..
    Is there a reason why?

  4. tabitha says:

    Listen live option isn’t working properly.

  5. Crista says:

    links to listen live does not work and when I select a station the ad plays but music does not. Is there any settings I can check to get either to work. I love Q101 and would love to listen at work over the internet.

    Thank you

    I really don’t want your alternative channels, all I want is to listen to the q101 radio station live. The fact I can’t quickly figure out how to get there is a web site design fail.
