I've been listening to a radio station from Québec everyday to improve my French listening. Although I still don't understand most of it, it's definitely helped.

I'd like to do the same with a Spanish radio station, and I'd prefer something from Mexico or Central America. I want something that's mostly talk radio, rather than music, but I don't really care so much what they're talking about. And I want to listen to it on the Internet, so I need something with a live feed.

Thanks for any suggestions

XEW Radio from Mexico City has an al aire (listen live) button. Radio Educación is also from Mexico City and available for live streaming.

WPAB 550 Ponce- not quite Central America but the Caribbean- Puerto Rico. WPAB is pretty much all talk and my local station on my car radio here. At 1300 you can hear "La Tremenda Corte" the still popular, though 50 year old plus, Cuban comedy Radio Show. You'll get to know Tres Patines.

I don't know which areas "Central America" refers to, but I listen to this station from Colombia and I like it. Mostly talk.

Edit: I did a bit of research and found out where "Central America" is. Central America is bordered by Colombia to the southeast, so Colombia is to the immediate southeast of Central America :)

I usually listen to voanoticias.com every day. Unfortunately, for about the last week and a half their podcasts have been screwed up. It is a program from the US so the accents are varied to some degree.

You might also consider podcasts. I have so many now that I could probably listen to them like a radio station.
:P

Arthaey, could you recommend some Latin American podcasts that are conversational?

I'm really liking Radio Ambulante, which is a lot like This American Life.

I also like Catastrofe Ultravioleta, but they're from Spain.
