A station that I definitely consider a hidden gem among the many is WUOT out of Knoxville, TN. WUOT features performances of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. WUOT is also home to Garrett McQueen who infamously participated in a Reddit AMA. His program is one of my favorites as he tends to produce shows of pieces that connect together through broad or narrow themes. He frequently goes outside of the usual suspects which I appreciate.
In addition, Nashville Public Radio broadcasts the Nashville Symphony.
Rhode Island Public Radio does not include any classical programming in it’s schedule and I could not locate any other classical station in the state. Those in Rhode Island might be able to receive broadcasts from other parts of New England.
I could not locate any information regarding classical music on Delaware Public Radio. My suspicion is that those in Delaware can pick up WRTI out of Philadelphia. Please see the Pennsylvania page for more information.
I could not locate any classical radio stations in New Jersey. I would imagine the state is well covered by the stations out of Philadelphia and New York.
The major stations that I discovered in Pennsylvania are WQED in Pittsburgh and WRTI in Philadelphia.
WQED has an on-demand archive of the Pittsburgh Symphony radio broadcasts, which are syndicated across the country.
WRTI broadcasts the Philadelphia Orchestra on it’s classical stream. For more info, visit WRTI.
I was surprised to learn that the Oregon Symphony does not have a radio deal with KQAC, the radio station in Portland, OR. KQAC does carry some syndicated concert programming, including the New York Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony. For more details, review KQAC’s schedule.
Performance Oklahoma is a local production on Public Radio Tulsa. It features several groups including the Oklahoma City Philharmonic.
For more information, check out Public Radio Tulsa.
Ohio has a few different important classical concert outlets.
WCLV out of Cleveland has broadcast the Cleveland Orchestra since 1965. The upcoming schedule is available. In addition, recordings are available on demand for two weeks after they are broadcast.
WGUC, a full time classical station in Cincinnati carries the Cincinnati Symphony. The upcoming schedule is available. On-demand streaming is available for one week after broadcast.
WDPR in Dayton produces several local concerts in their region, including the Dayton Philharmonic, Springfield Symphony and Richmond Symphony. For the upcoming schedule, visit WDPR.
I could not find any information on classical radio stations in North Dakota or South Dakota. There appear to be some affiliates of Minnesota Public Radio in both states.
WDAV out of Davidson, North Carolina and South Carolina Public Radio have teamed up to produce Carolina Live, a local program which broadcasts concerts of several orchestras in the region including the Greensboro Symphony, Greenville Symphony, South Carolina Philharmonic and the Winston-Salem Symphony. Past episodes of Carolina Live are available on demand at their website.
