Classical 104.9 turns ONE this weekend!

Yes, January 27th marks the official First Birthday for Classical 104.9 here in New Orleans.

As the city of New Orleans gets ready to welcome another Carnival season, Classical 104.9 FM has some parade-themed pieces perfect for your "krewe".

Listen FRIDAY, January 5th at 9am for a full hour of music to get you ready for the parades! 

Along with our live-hosted music, we've created a Spotify playlist, full of carnival pieces and New Orleans favorites.

The wait is finally over... a brand-new season of live, Saturday afternoon radio broadcasts from The Metropolitan Opera begins at Noon on Saturday, December 2nd. A complete performance of Verdi's sweeping "Requiem" begins this new season, with favorites including Mozart's "The Magic Flute" and Lehar's "The Merry Widow" airing in December.
