Thought it would be fun for everyone to share (or plug) their local Classical Music station.

In the Charlotte, NC area the station is WDAV located on the campus of Davidson College.  I like to take students up there twice a year to answer phones for their pledge drive, the kids get a real kick out of it.

You can listen to WDAV online for free at:

Excellent idea.  However, I am tuned to mine right at the moment, so maybe in a bit (see listening thread). :)

Don:
My overall opinion of the classical music station in Albuquerque, New Mexico is that it sucks: too much crossover, too much light classical, too much guitar music, too much Vivaldi and a major penchant for playing only parts of compositions.  So the only time I give it a try is when I forget to have any cds in the car.

Here is the playlist for our station today in Denver (we share some programming with L.A. as well).  How does it compare to yours Don?:

WFMT in Chicago is wonderful. They currently broadcast recordings of both the CSO and Lyric.  ;D Especially entertaining, is a lovely program at 7.00 pm on weekdays. Specific subgeneras of music, or particular composers are discussed, and major as well as relatively unknown items from their oevure are aired. The station is quite a boon to music lovers in Chicago!
