Radio Querétaro

If you want to live the vicarious Querétaro Experience to its absolute fullest, this is a happy day for you, my friends, because the local public radio station, Radio Querétaro, 100.3FM, is now online, and streaming. This is without a doubt one of the oddest non-college radio stations we've ever heard, an eclectic mix of top-40 pop, regional Mexican, klezmer, classical and experimental music. A couple of nights ago, a tribute to ranchera queen Lucha Villa was followed by an hour of Brand X. During the daytime it seems to be mostly talk.

There's a programming schedule here, though I'm not convinced they make much effort to keep to it. If you're interested, there's bullfighting - the least radio-friendly thing you can imagine - Saturdays at 4:00pm. As an added bonus, the station holds free concerts a couple of blocks from here every Sunday afternoon at 4:00, which are broadcast live, and which we can hear through the open windows, so there's a couple hours a week where you can literally hear what Burro Hall sounds like in real time.

And this, we post just because it feels right.
