Daryl Ries of Keller Williams Panama, associate – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
Gerry Dowden owner of Panama Broadcasting, Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingMusic is all over the radio in Panama, and salsa is forever, but there are English-speaking radio programs in Panama that are extremely popular. For example, there is “The Breakfast Show” by an Englishman, Gerry Dowden, that’s been running for “upteen” years.  PBCPanama includes news reports, interviews, announcements of events, and music.
 
As for international radio, I’m not sure, but I assume it is as good as getting TV stations.

Though there are no specifically American or Canadian radio stations in Panama, of course you can still get them online. 
 
Locally, there is a Canadian guy who does a weekly radio broadcast called The Great White North that keeps the Canadian expats up to date with news and information. He works with a British guy who owns the program.  They broadcast about three hours every morning, Monday to Friday on a program called “The Breakfast Show with Gerry D.” They serve the market well and are successful.

Gerry D on 89.3 is currently the only English-speaking radio program in Panama. He is on from 7 to 10 AM and he's funny, interesting and retirement age. (He might kill me for saying that, but he's relevant, anyway.)
 
It's also possible to get satellite radio here - which means you can get any station from your car - if you have the equipment set up at home or in your vehicle.

There are plenty of American or Canadian and British English speaking DJ's  on the different radio stations locally in Panama.  I would also advise to download "TuneInRadio" on your computer, that way you can tune into anywhere in the world over the internet.  Works like a charm.  I am listening to German Radio right this moment. . .
 
89.3 is Cool FM and has a great 3 hour broadcasting from 7am to 10am Mondays to Fridays with British moderator Jerry D, very informative on anything happening in Panama from news translations to interviews of interesting people here in this country.
 
Other than that I recommend to listen to some local stations, get the beats of our latino music, including the Panamanian Tipico music (accordeon)... which also introduces all the happenings in the music scene here in Panama. 
 
Again, American or Canadian radio stations can be listened to on the internet...
