As far as radio stations go: We get NPR and two classic rock stations. I don’t get either of them in my car but in Leah’s car, we can hear at least one. So maybe it depends. I’d go iPod, CD, or old-school cassette. If I were you I’d tune in online for radio listening (or cross your fingers and hope your car is in-range).
WAIT WAIT WAIT: THIS JUST IN FROM SMcAbee:
On Verizon: It can be odd at times but I have Verizon and currently I have 3 out of 5 bars of service. Some spots on campus don’t pick up any, some spots pick up all five. Last year, I consistently got great service so that makes me think that perhaps they are doing work on a tower somewheres near by.
Good luck though. Hope this helps a little.
