Rub your eyes, girls and boys. The Nielsen ratings are in for 2014 and the #1 music station for San Francisco is…. classical KDFC.

And by a standout margin. The ratings are measured on an average share of listening Monday-Sunday 6am to 12am; for persons aged six and over.

    I wonder whether that includes online listeners. I listen to KDFC’s live stream, and I’m in Arizona. Nowhere near SF.

  • Alan Paterson says:

    Good point. I live stream KDFC every morning in South Africa.
