Tune in to WKCR from May 22 to May 23 for a 48-hour broadcast devoted exclusively to the works of Richard Wagner. Perhaps the most influential German composer of the nineteenth century, Wagner redefined the way audiences think of music, drama, and art. We will be playing his operas chronologically from Rienzi to Parsifal. Tune in to hear the greatest singers and musicians of the past eight decades.

On May 8th we broke the story that many Columbia Football players were freely expressing racist, homophobic, and anti-semitic remarks on their public Twitter accounts that were promoted by Columbia Athletics. That night, we discussed the fallout from this story combined with Sunday night's assault involving members of the football team. The Firing Lion can be heard in its entirety on our SoundCloud page here https://soundcloud.com/wkcrsports/the-firing-lion-may-8th-2013 until we can upload a better-sounding version to www.wkcr.org

As of 2012, WKCR is broadcasting in the radio format called HD— the expanded radio technology once known as Hybrid Digital. While we will continue analog broadcasts at 89.9 FM, and internet streaming of our signal, we will offer the same programming in a high-quality, static-free, digital version, accessible through HD radios and apps. The upgrade has been made possible through assistance with radio station WWFM, which will transmit a full schedule of classical music programs on “sister” station, 89.9 HD2.
