Hey! It’s been a bit of a while.
My car that I drive to work in every day is old enough to have predated the CD revolution, forget about the age of the iPod, and as such it has only such cutting-edge technology as a radio/tape deck. As my family currently owns about three tapes, none of which I’m that interested in listening to (I grew out of Marvelous Middos Machine more than a few years before I learned how to drive), I now drive to work listening to the voices in my head, which are getting repetitive.
Does anyone know of any good 24 hour Jewish radio stations I’d be able to tune into? My job has weird hours and I miss JM in the AM (bH I’m still asleep then…) and I really don’t know of any others. I’d prefer music-only but really anything is fine.
TIA!August 12, 2014 5:48 am at 5:48 am #1037676SayIDidIt™Participant
Maybe post a listing on the YW Classifieds (or another site) for a decent car CD player and replace your hi tech tape recorder? Just an idea…

There is a Jewish radio station in South Africa called ChaiFM. I think it is available online 24 hours.August 12, 2014 11:23 am at 11:23 am #103767964bitsomethingParticipant
You can buy a radio transmitter or a tape adapter – both can connect to any mp3 players headphone jack. Staples probably has both for under $20. The tape adapter is more reliable, radio transmitter can be hard to use depending on where you live. But you can just pop the tape into your car, the wire still sticks out – plug that into your ipod/zune/sansa/etc and hit play.

this person asked for radio stations he can listen to in his car, he didn’t ask to change his car radio, he didn’t ask for mp3 or for something online. people are so helpful, but look at the question. Why doesn’t someone suggest reading a book while driving?August 12, 2014 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #1037681To be or not to beMember
97.5 used to always work but now the signal is a bit shaky. if you understand Hebrew try 88.7 you get the kol beramah signal. otherwise I would recommend your closest Jewish music store which will probably have cassettes on a steep discount (1.99 or so)
But I am worried about those voices of yours, you should perhaps visit a psychiatristAugust 12, 2014 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1037682writersoulParticipant
TBONTB: My psychiatrist told me to listen to them, as they tell me to get organized and start packing for seminary.
I think that my dad has one of the tape adapters but he’s using it in his similarly ungifted car right now- maybe I’ll ask him to buy me another one. In the meantime, I’ll check out the radio stations you guys mentioned and maybe look for a couple good Carlebach tapes or something.
Chaimy: It’s fine. Honestly, I wish I could read a book while driving…
YW42: It’s funny, I never really listened to those all that much when I was a kid. I was a big scaredy-cat and the one we had was the one where the cannibals tried to eat Shnooky, which didn’t do much good for my nightmares.August 12, 2014 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #1037683Just SmileParticipant
Clearly you never had a chance to truly appreciate Marvelous Middos Machine if you grew out of it more than a few years before you learned how to drive unless you learnt how to drive at like 90 years old (but then still).
I would suggest, committing to at least 1 week of MMM and then come back and reassess. It’s a whole different tape from when you were a kid.August 12, 2014 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #1037684🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
writersoul- I’ve seen these tape adapters in the 99 cent store. They’re really inexpensive.August 12, 2014 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #1037685August 12, 2014 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #1037686To be or not to beMember

I hate to break this to you but no one packs this early to go to seminary. you are supposed to run around like a maniac a day before you leave . that’s the rule!
It’s fine. Honestly, I wish I could read a book while driving… so why don’t you download some audiobooks and listen to them on your mp3? don’t get anything too exciting though..
