...that plays your favorite songs? I want to listen to some music while I'm working on the computer. I like indie folk stuff like Monsters and Men or Mumford and Sons.

Do you have a smartphone? I use the TuneIn Radio app to listen to various stations. I don't have a favorite, but you can stream stations from all over.

KEXP out of Seattle! They play a wide range of music, but I'm sure a lot of it would be to your taste. Although there's a pledge drive going on right now - maybe check out the streaming archive instead? kexp.org

There's always Pandora, but to answer your question: my favorite local station is 107.1 (WQKL in Ann Arbor). It looks like it fits your bill pretty well: Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Walk the Moon, Imagine Dragons, Ed Sheeran, Ray LaMontagne, Mayer Hawthorne… It's not all indie-folky-rock as it plays some older things too like Patti Smith, Sheryl Crow, 90s-era Counting Crows, Fastball, older U2, John Mellencamp, etc.

To give a brief example: on my way back from the library this morning I got Of Monsters and Men, David Gray, Elvis Costello, and Dawes.

CHRW Radio in my city! It's the university station, so they have programs for different genres instead of one continuous type of music they play.
Everything from indie rock, noise, punk, electronic, metal, classical, world music. It's really diverse, and I even listen to the talk programs about religion (they have an Islamic one and a Catholic one) because I learn a lot.

80s alternative on Pandora is pretty good, there are some other 80s stations on there that I like.

I listen to a lot of Pandora, but I miss WOXY's stream.

I have a really really really great local station, too: WBER. They aren't a commercial station, so you don't have to listen to 8 minutes of commercials to listen to 5 minutes of music, and they have a good mix of alternative, indie, and retro-alternative in rotation.
