Changing format to Classical
Posted on July 9, 2009
I decided after struggling with programming the station was sounding stale and repetitive. After some serious thought I decided it would be better to offer up something this area has never heard before.
Sure there are a few translators for the London,Ky area and I am sure people listen to the NPR stations served up by the folks at WEKU Eastern Kentucky University.
But NPR is a bit stuffy and they are not especially fond of Part 15 radio stations carrying their programming even though they are non-commercial.
WCPE on the other hand allows anyone to re-transmit their signals over cable, internet, satellite and terrestrial radio stations.
WCNE receives the signal from WCPE’s online streaming and re-transmits the signal over 1680 am & 106.7 fm using light processing to preserve the great sound quality offered by WCPE.
Some of the shows we offer on WCNE will remain however the times they are aired will change to accommodate the new format. Shows affected by the format change are Electromaticradio, Pirates Week and The Shortwave Report.
The programs mentioned above will be moved to the over-night hours or early mornings before 5 am.
I hope listeners will enjoy this new format and take the time to thank WCPE for doing such a great job. This is classical radio without the stuffy feel of NPR.
