Q101 | Alternative Since 1992

By Q101, LLC

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Formerly broadcast on Chicago's 101.1 FM — The Q101 brand is the Bat Signal to Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials. When Q101is seen and heard in Chicago, people recognize it. Q101 is a warm blanket, a plate of comfort food, or a phone call with a close friend. In an era of over connections, too many social networks, lots of hype, and lots more sizzle than steak…Q101 has managed to mean something to millions of Gen X, Gen Y, and Millennials who don’t believe in much, and even more who want to believe in something. Cookie cutter radio stations all but killed the sort of movement that is Q101. Throughout the various trends and fads, Q101 survived and stayed relevant to it’s core audience over two decades. Kiss, Star, Edge, Jack, Buzz, Rock…and now Pandora are all time fillers with nothing that sticks and no longer term connection. They’re great for entertainment in the moment mind you, but no one waits on hold for hours in hopes of winning a Pandora T-Shirt. Pandora like many cookie cutter radio stations is a faceless jukebox void of personal connection. Advertisers who want to sell more products need more than exposures to build businesses and brands. Advertisers want audiences who are connected. Spotify, Pandora, and all the other services are fashion. Q101 is the steward of a generation.

Customer Reviews

Q101 rocks!

Sick of bubblegum pop music that keeps playing the same songs over and over???Take great Alternative music with you everywhere using this app! Only thing is I can't figure out yet how to Bluetooth to my speaker or car speakers instead of phone?

Good App

Good app; allows me to enjoy the Q101 music & the hilarious promos on the go or at home. User friendly & no crashes. I like the ability to rate a song(s) & it is on point in letting you know what song(s) are playing. Really enjoying it so far, if you are a fan of Alternative music or want to relive the Q101 glory days then this is the app for you.

Best chicago rock app!

Literally the only people who don't like this app, put ketchup on their hotdogs....find out when the best bands are coming to town and discovery amazing local talent along with new artists. Now, please for the love of God, stop putting ketchup on your hotdog and download this app immediately!
