I really haven't paid enough attention when traveling (or traveled that much) to be connoisseur of Michigan radio, but these few stick out for me in no particular order:

- 96.5 WQHH, Lansing (urban/hip hop): An impressive hip hop station for such a small community. For a time, it's morning show was one of the top (if not the top, can't remember) shows in the market. Unfortunately, it's rather low-powered, so it has sucky reception, and doesn't even cover the whole city of Lansing, but covers huge, sparesly populated rural lands. And, with being bought out by McDonald Broadcasting in 2006, the quality of the radio shows have gone down.

- 97.5 WJIM, Lansing (Top 40): What can I say? You always need a reliable Top 40 station, right?

- 97.9 WJLB, Detroit (urban/hip hop): just an all-around great big city hip hop station.

- 88.9 WDBM, Michigan State University (The Impact): It's a top-rated college station, and it earns it.

DUBYA D F N 1130 AM Detroit, I stream them over the web when I'm in GR so that I can listen to "It is what it is" and "Stoney and Wojo"

That's easy, 88.9 The Impact. Since college I haven't been able to listen to any other radio stations, they become repetitive way to fast. Unfortunately The Impact has a very limited range so unless I'm in the Lansing area I listen to it online. The Impact

Has anyone ever heard of 89.1 WIDR? Its the WMU station very similar to 88.9 WDBM MSU, only it plays less main stream music. There is a large variaty and it is scheduled for different types of music at different time depending on the DJ. There is everything from bluegrass, to hip-hop, heavy metal, international, and my favorte hour, Dub / reggae. The only bad thing is its such a weak signal you have to be pretty much within a 10 mi or so radius to WMU pretty much West Kalamazoo only.
