Off Air for Maintenance

The WNJR broadcast has ceased until late August or early September for scheduled equipment overhauls.  The webstream is still available.

Democracy Now, Saturday Light Brigade, This Way Out, Allegheny Front, and Jazzin' Around will continue during this period.

12th Street Jump, The New Jazz Archive, Big Picture Science, Philosophy Talk, and A Way With Words will resume when the broadcast returns. Exciting news about an additional syndicated program will be announced soon.

Some of our community shows hosts will be taking a much deserved break from their shows during this period.

Student shows return in September!

We've been on your radio and your computer for years.  Now WNJR can be heard on your tablet and your phone too. Thanks to the W&J ITS staff, especially Jason Pergola and Justin Krehel, for setting up our new web stream service.  It has been tested on a variety of platforms and browsers, so chances are good you'll be able to listen in just about anywhere at anytime.  Click on the "Listen" tab to check it out.

Legends of Song

Our jazz Hi-Rotation list on WNJR for July is dedicated to the supreme singers of the past. This group had great popular success while still exercising their ability to swing with the great musicians  in jazz. These singers also had vast catalogs of recorded music that spanned decades. Phrasing melodies so that the lyrics communicated their story was their highest art. Enjoy these treasures.

We salute and remember..........The First Lady of Song-ELLA FITZGERALD
