Back in the `70s WCBU was an awesome station late at night. No commercials, FM Rock all night long. I lived in the West Peoria area, Morton and Havana and this was my station of chose after hours. I worked the Graveyard shift at a 24 hour service station in Havana and they kept me company in the wee see more... hours. I'd even call in requests. Those were most definately . . . the DAYS !

This is an excellent NPR station. I like the programming: they have talk radio and news all day and at night as well rather than the classical music many stations opt for (I don't care for that).
