Classical Music on the Radio

Looks like it's making a comeback, after a decade wherein many classical stations either retreated into non-threatening baroque/early romantic music, or converted to 24/7 talk format.

Seattle has one commercial classical station, but it will be going listener supported in May. The playlist seems to be all over the map.

I hope when you write "non-threatening baroque/early romantic" you're using the first adjective to restrict the meaning, as for example: "non-threatening baroque" to mean Pachelbel. But if you're implying that baroque and early romantic music is some sort of easy listening, well for heaven's sake immerse yourself in Bach or Schubert. They've never been absent from my local station's playlist.
