KQED Public Radio
KRCB: 91.1 FM

KSVY: 91.3 FM
Voice of the Valley
These stations program public radio classics such as "All Things Considered," and a wide variety of panels, commentators, and interviewers on topics of political and social significance.

KRSH: 95.9 FM
The programming falls mostly within the "adult album alternative" format, which includes a wide variety of musicians ranging from Weezer to the Grateful Dead, the Wallflowers and Pearl Jam.

96.7 Bob FM
The format does play anything—so long as it doesn't stray far from conventional alternative rock formats.
KVRV: 97.7 FM
This station plays the Rolling Stones, Metallica, and almost everything in between.
