Tune in Sunday at 11pm to hear an interview with Ara Dinkjian, the Armenian-American composer/oudist. From composing multi-platinum hits to recording solo oud improvisations, Ara Dinkjian spans a variety of classifications that cannot possibly describe his music. He is the pioneer Armenian-American musician of his generation, and has contributed significantly to the oud tradition. Tune in to hear his music, and his insights on oud, the Armenian musical tradition, and his work from the last 3 decades.

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.
