Music on WWNO

WWNO is Southeast Louisiana’s principal source of broadcast classical music, on its main signal, 89.9 FM, and on its digital channel, WWNO2.  At work or at home, classical music has the power to stimulate and energize, or to relax and calm.  Every day WWNO’s Senior Classical Announcer Farrar Hudkins presents a fascinating and broad selection from among the world’s great classical music.  And along with the daily selections WWNO presents weekly programs like World of Opera, From the Top, and Live at the Concertgebouw, as well as our own program of early music, Continuum, and our monthly New Orleans in Concert.

When news airs on 89.9, classical music can be heard on WWNO2, and vice versa—mix your own WWNO to suit your preference. Hear WWNO2 on an HD radio, or listen online, right from our homepage.

Music on WWNO includes jazz and other styles too!  American Routes presents a range of American popular music as big as the country itself, and Hearts of Space airs New Age music that will open your ears. Saturday Night Jazz is a tradition on WWNO, with Jack Hopke’s selections of straight-ahead jazz from around the nation and around New Orleans. Listen to jazz anytime on WWNO3, our all-jazz HD channel. More information about WWNO’s HD channels can be found here.
