Best Eclectic Radio Program 

The Pop Life

On any given Wednesday afternoon, from noon-2 p.m., Anton Stropus plumbs the deep virtues of musical unpredictability. His KDHX-FM program -- often cheering, always bracing -- is a fantasy of escape from the genre-terrorized world of mainstream radio where pop music has been reduced to the hedged bets of know-nothing consultants and homogenized satellite feeds. Spanning geography and history, Anton's shows are both in the moment and open to pop classics: Great singles from Motown or Sun make a fresh claim on the spirit when sequenced with the latest rock experiments, as opposed to being stuck in a mere "oldies" format. On a single show, Anton will spin Moby, the Raspberries, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Los Lobos, Richard Thompson, Bob Dylan, Cibo Matto, Big Star, Los Zafiros, Mandy Barnett, the Apples in Stereo and Son Volt -- and it all sounds fantastic together.
