Radio has been the preferred medium for delivering music and entertainment for free for over a century. Since the early 1900s, music, shows, weather, and news was broadcasted over the airwaves for anyone with a radio receiver to collect and hear. Nowadays there is so much free music online available through online radios that using the actual radio is becoming a bit significant.

This phasing out of popular radio stations is caused mostly by the huge variety available on the internet. Where a listener would have a choice between ten to fifteen stations in the past, nowadays the listener has access to literally thousands of different stations specializing in almost anything imaginable.

One of the most popular ways to differentiate between different styles of music is by decade. There are tons of free internet services that offer stations geared towards 80s music. Musicians include The Cars, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and more. This era was extremely rich in terms of its music output and the variety found in this decade is tremendous.

Another popular genre is 90s music. This era was epitomized by alternative rock and grunge (although obviously there were plenty of other styles going on). Some of the bigger bands from this period include Alice in Chains, 311, Pearl Jam, Blind Melon, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Blink 182 and many more.

If you are interested in checking out some of these great bands and thousands of other options, do a quick search for them – you won’t be sorry.
