I mostly listen to NPR: Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, All Things Considered, Car Talk, etc. The public radio station that I listen to has some good local programs too. I'll listen to local sports talk and/or ESPN Radio when it's baseball season.

I listen to Stern, sports radio (WEEI) during mid day and afternoons, and Opie & Anthony on XM in the evening. I'm fed up with hearing the same 20 songs on commercial radio.
I used to listen to Dr. Laura faithfully, and she did give me some good advice on some family troubles while preparing Jessica's wedding. (Yes, we actually got through to her)
I'm not sure if Mike Reagan is on still, I used to listen to him also. I was on there too. (I know....but it makes me feel like a big shot )
Now I sit here in front of my computer all freakin' day with so-called music blaring.
eta: uh oh, I just gave away my party affiliation - I guess I just outted myself as a republican.
JD, honey, you live in Utah...that is almost a given.

Yep Ilikai, Jim is still on in the afternoons...he's my favorite of the Real Radio crew. Midday there's Shannon Burke (he used to be on AM radio here, but moved over 6-8 months or so ago to)...he's pretty entertaining as well, and a really nice guy (he shops in my store occasionally). The Monsters have moved into the morning slot and I just don't listen to them all that often anymore cause I have the radio on either before they are on or after.

I am a huge fan of Sports talk radio! We have a pretty good station here that I listen to regularly. But even when I am on the road one of the first things I do when I get there is to find the Sports talk station. Sports station callers are really intense and passionate, it cracks me up!
I'm so glad to see so many you responding to my question! I had a strong feeling that since we enjoy "reality" programming that talk radio was also part of your day.
I forgot to tell you which shows are my favorite to hear these days, so here's a brief list.
My current favorite is the Rick and Bubba show out of Birmingham, AL. They are fun guys who have an family friendly show that is sometimes silly, sometimes conservative and patriotic, and sometimes has a rock and roll beat. It is hard to describe the show but it's worth the try. They can be heard online also from weekdays 6-10 CST at www.rickandbubba.com. Like they say, you have to listen for at least a few weeks to really get a feel for the show, but I highly recommend them.
I also like the Dave Ramsey show for it's sound and common sense financial/money management advice. Dave can be heard weekdays at www.daveramsey.com from 1-4 pm cst, or you can listen any time to the archived shows.
Other shows on my favorites list include the Michael Reagan show, Glenn Beck, Car Talk, Sean Hannity, and sometimes Michael Savage(when he's not on too big of a rampage). Recently, I've started listening to Lars Larson, but I can only stand a little bit of his show that late at night as I drive in from work.
I used to listen to Dr. Laura, but her timeslot has changed locally. I had mixed feelings when listening to her show anyway. While I agreed with much of her advice, I would often get irritated at how sharp toned she was with some of the callers.
Every once in a while, I like to catch Prairie Home Companion or What Do You Know? on public radio, but I'm often away from the radio when they come on these days.

Just take a breath and relax...everything's going to be just fine...

I live for Marketplace on NPR. And I love when I am able to catch Car Talk; those guys crack me up. Occasionally, I'll listen to Fresh Air, but sometimes Terry Gross annoys me.
As for non-NPR stuff, I rarely listen except for this one show that's local--they do the broadcast from a wine store/higher end bar, and always have wine experts or food experts on and talk about the special wines or liquors of the week.
I had forgotten about him. Since he is on in the evenings here, I don't get to listen to him much, but I love him. Makes great sense and I am dreaming of the day I can call him and tell him "I AM DEBT FREE!!!!!"
