Take an audio spin through the FM band as heard in Songtan, Korea on June 7th across the street from my old apartment where I spend many weekends in the spring. As it's a Sunday evening, there's plenty of talk, a lot of baseball, typical Christian programming (also in English on this day), and a smattering of Miley Cyrus, Steppenwolf, Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, Natalie Merchant, Little Walter, Oasis, Rachel Platten, and Kansas.

Programming originates domestically as well as from China and North Korea in Korean, English, and Chinese, as close as two miles across town (Osan Air Base's American Forces Network) and as far away as rural mountainous Linqu, China, 473 miles to the west. There are 100 stations with a handful of part-time stations - mostly border propaganda stations and North Korean stations - off the air at that time of evening.

Listings include the frequency, city, network or station name, call letters (except for China and North Korea, which don't use them), and distance. Stations heard on seek are noted with an asterisk, local stations are in bold, and Chinese and North Korean stations in brown. The band varies very little in Korea (even that is an exaggeration), so nothing heard here is especially out of the ordinary.
