Sounds like you want jack FM in LA. They pretty much play the line up you listed.I don't listen to the radio much anymore, I just usually listen to the songs I've got downloaded on my phone and if I do listen to the radio for music it's on The Sound 100.3. I do find myself listening to John & Ken on KFI once in a while during the afternoon drive, but sometimes their rants just get annoying.
Back on point, there are no stations that play the latest rock music, and I mean music like I grew up listening to in 70's to early 90's. No more stations like KMET, KWeSt, KLOS, etc. In their heyday these stations ruled the airwaves for rock, granted there were pop and disco stations (like KKDJ that became KISS FM, K100 and on AM KHJ and KISS, and for awhile KRTH was a homey station when they played only 50's and early 60's music), that had their fan base. KLOS is still there, but since Mark & Brian left I haven't listened to them, I can't stand the new morning duo, and they are just a shadow of their former self. But real rock stations that played rock music no longer exist or there are no rock bands bands putting out worthwhile music anymore.
I was perusing iTunes this morning and sampling some songs and came to the conclusion that most of the songs that are played on classic rock stations would never be deemed worthy of airplay today on a rock station if they weren't an established band. What type of radio format would the Eagles be played on, or Van Morrison, or Tom Petty, REM, The Cure, Counting Crows Grateful Dead, Aerosmith, The Beatles, The Allman Brothers - you get my point.
Music is so commercialized now that if you're a rock musician looking for big break, you better have something better than really awesome or you'll never get your music heard other then your local fan base.
I bought a Logitech Squeeze box internet radio for my bedroom since we sleep with music on. In Phoenix we listen to Kroq, jack FM, 91X in SD and Indie 103.1.

Was just having the same conversation with a friend of mine, old rock and roller from the sixties that still performs.
He listens to a local college station and I told him about a college station I listen to that's jazz all week and blues on the weekends. Wouldn't have known Kenny Wayne and Stephan Stills were touring and have a CD out otherwise.
The rest of the stations play 40 year old rock over and over.
This new generation needs to open a can of man the f*ck up.
Chili your first post is absolutely dead nut on the money.
Growing in in SoCal I just assumed that KMET and the others...KNAC, KLOS, etc would go on forever. I guess a lot of us did.
When I moved up here in 1976 the FM band was pretty much dead except for KZAP, which was a great station (long gone) and a station out of woodland that everyone seemed to think kicked ass but I thought it sucked.
There is one classic rock station in NorCal, KSEG out of Sac...I can handle it for a few hours a week because beyond that they really get repetitive.
A new "Rock and Roll" band as you and I would define it is gonna have a hard time getting going on radio, because there isn't any.
I have Sirius/XM (via Dishnetwork) in the shop and listen to Classic Vinyl or Deep Tracks,
and wonder why there ain't no real radio no more.

When i listen to the radio, its 102.5 WDVE out of Pittsburgh, PA. Its definately not your regular, run of the mill clear channel rock station. Great morning show too!
They've been recently playing songs from a band named Chrome Moses. Good shit.
I get it on iheart radio
The station did play good music, and they supported local bands (I still love "The Clarks").
Who is the morning show? Are they locals to the 'burgh?
?When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ?happy?. They told me I didn?t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn?t understand life.?

Hi Folks , Huge fan of music in general and particularly Rock and Rock radio from clear back to the sixties even back to Wolfman Jack , background music is an integral part of our day in the shop and we have been streaming from Pandora and Iheart using an older extra desk top but regardless of the internet choice or even occasionally when using my ipod we get a lot of "cut outs" and "shuddering" The desk top has nothing running in the background any thoughts ? gets real annoying and often we end up switching back to terrestrial Thanks Tom
In the US it is a lot of pop music crap, like the award shows or country. Rock is bigger in Europe for some reason. I hear it all the time on Sirius radio. Sirus plays a lot of new bands and bands from other countries. I love to listen to Octane, turned me onto 12 Foot Ninja ! They are from Australia.
Randy Bauman is the morning guy now but for as long as i can remember it was Scott Paulsen and Jim Krenn. From the late 80's till just a few years ago.
They released a whole bunch of morning show cd's back in the day. One of their most famous bits is "pants n'at".
