Tune in during tonight's Jazz Alternatives from 6-9pm for a special tribute to Haden. A more extensive, comprehensive memorial broadcast will run from 2pm on Sunday, July 13th through 9pm on Monday, July 14th, preempting all regular programming.

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.
