What is your favorite shortwave program that you listen to for the content more than just for the catch?

Cuban jazz on a R8 in synch mode was lovely, and it was fun to listen to the Iranian propaganda bcast Voice of Justice when they ran that. Haven't done a lot of hfbc tuning lately, will have to do more.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

RNZ Saturday Night Requests on RNZI, currently 0700-1200 UTC Saturdays (the time changes because it's oriented to local NZ time, based on whether it's Standard or Summer for them). I have to record it overnight most of the time. Also enjoy Jazz From The Left on WRMI 7730 at 0000 UTC Wednesday, Shortwave Radiogram on various WRMI and WINB frequencies and times, Glenn Hauser when I can catch him, NHK in English, Arnie Coro and The Jazz Place on RHC, BBC depending on the programming, Voice of Korea just because they're such a throwback to the Cold War, various others.
Denver, CO.
SDRPlay RSP2pro, Icom IC-7100, Grundig Satellit 750, Realistic DX-300, Tecsun PL-600.

Thanks for the replies. When not tuning for new stations I usually listen to Radio China or Radio Romania. Sometimes Radio Havana
