Most NPR stations are found between 87.9 and 91.9 FM on American radio dials in what is known as the "educational band" or "left of the dial" for people who still use radios with analog tuners[[note]]Combine that with NPR's aforementioned reputation (along with that of CollegeRadio, found in the same educational band) as a bastion of liberalism in radio, and a common stereotype is that "left of the dial" also means "left of center". Hence, the joke in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' about that game's NPR parody PLR being "left of the dial... all the way to the left."[[/note]]. Some NPR stations are found on frequencies outside of that range,[[note]]For example, WVGR, Michigan Radio's West Michigan affiliate (it's officially called their Grand Rapids affiliate but it's also the primary NPR broadcaster for other parts of the western region of Michigan's lower peninsula, south to around Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, also north to around Newaygo), broadcasts at 104.1 FM, while WNYC's AM station broadcasts at 93.9 FM.[[/note]] either because the college signed it on the air before the education band was set aside by the FCC, a commercial FM owner decided to donate their station to an educational organization or the public radio network had purchased a repeater station further up the band from another radio company [[note]]an example would be Rhode Island Public Radio, located at both 88.7 FM with a clearer, stronger repeater located all the up at 102.7 FM.[[/note]]. Some stations are also on AM, though this is rare due to sound quality concerns and a higher cost of operation for an AM signal, and mainly limited to heritage stations which have been on AM for years, such as New York's WNYC (which has both AM and FM signals) and WHA in Madison, Wisconsin, which is one of the oldest radio stations in the world.

* ''Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe'' -- The rare American PanelGame, based loosely on the British ''News Quiz''. Aside from the regular rotating panelists, the show also includes call-in games and, OnceAnEpisode, "Not My Job", in which a celebrity, politician or other newsmaker calls in to the show and has to answer questions that fall well outside his or her area of expertise.

* ''[[http://thistleradio.com/ The Thistle & Shamrock]]'': A long-running Celtic music program hosted by Fiona Ritchie, originally produced by member station WFAE out of Charlotte, North Carolina. According to Ritchie, a native Scotswoman, the genesis of the show was the realization that there were a lot of similarities between Appalachian folk music and the Scots tunes she grew up with (which makes sense considering the number of Scots who settled there). Reportedly the most-listened-to Celtic music show in the world.
