Looking for online music stations

Hello Faithful Readers (all three of you!),

I give out a general call for help. A plea for direction. I need tune-age. Can anyone point me to a good online website/radio station offering free, clear, streaming of 70's/80's Punk? Not that Stinkin Park stuff, but the real juice. I'm looking for real 3-chord anger and fret-buzz/feedback from bands like Fear, The Germs, The Ramones, MC5, The Stooges, Black Flag, X, Gang of Four, Patti Smith, Dead Kennedys, The Buzzcocks, Richard Hell, X-Ray Spex, Killing Joke, T.S.O.L. and Shakira (whoops, how'd that last one get in there?) [and e.t.c.].

The angst-ridden teenager within me thanks you in advance.

Hmm, that's a tough one since I'm not usually seeking out the angst-punk, but the angst-drone / noise. At work I listen to kfjc.org from san jose and wfmu.org from NYC. I'm sure they have punk shows but it's probably only slotted for three hours a week or something. You'd have to check the schedules. Oh, WNUR in evanston is quite good, too. Too bad they don't have any Bad Brains at the Bowling Alley jukebox. You'd probably wack out an arm trying to keep up with your adrenaline! Speaking of bowling, I've got the fever... the fever for more action. When's the next game?!?

I'll check those out, thanks. Also, though limited times, the S.A.I.C. Free radio (see link to right) has some good shows now and again.

As for Bowling? Fun time, and I would be up for it again. Let's get a lane further down next time Ha Ha ha.
