Chicago's favorite music radio stations are competing neck and neck for the top spot, according to February data.

The big picture: WLIT-FM is riding one of the most dominating waves in radio ratings history, reminding us of when WGN-AM and WGCI-FM reigned supreme.

Yes, but: WRDV-FM (The Drive) is challenging The Lite once again, climbing past WBBM-AM to claim the second spot in this month's ratings.

Biggest winner: Besides The Drive, WGN-AM jumped to a 3.5 share (3.1 in January).

Biggest loser: WBBM-AM dropped by a .8 share (6.2 in January).

Of note: These ratings don't break down precisely when people are tuning in, nor specific listener demographics.

Disclosure: Justin Kaufmann has worked for a number of these stations.
