I don't care much for the music radio around here, but it's not a problem now that we have internet streams (KROQ sounds pretty good so I'll have to check out their stream) and ipods available. I listen to a lot of talk radio and podcasts anyway, so I don't listen to as much music as I used to.
As for live music, it's pretty common for bands I'm interested in to skip KC, but with the limited number of shows I go to, it's not a problem to find acts that appeal to me rolling through town. For example, I've been waiting for Brian Jonestown Massacre to come to KC since NewChief turned me on to the DiG documentary about them, but it doesn't seem like they make it here very often.
