Radio Kansas HD5 - For the holiday season we're using our Cinema Classics channel to present continous classics for those not interested (or just not yet interested) in our Classical Carols mix. We call this service simply the Classical Channel. As an experimental, beta service, this is also an alternate orchestral music stream for those times when our main FM station is serving audiences other than classical music fans. This station is accessible exclusively online through the link below.
As a secondary service providing continuous classical music with limited interruption for station identification, we're not investing staff time in announcing specific selections on the Classical Channel. In lieu of live announcements we invite listeners to us those magical music identification smart phone apps like Shazam and Soundhound, or call as a selection ends and we'll do our best to deliver CD information by phone!
Tell your friends...let us know what you think, and make sure and join us for the weekly Cinema Classics feature on our primary station Friday evenings from 7 to 9!
In the months of January, April, August and September we present the eight concerts of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra Friday nights. For movie music we hope you'll join us throughout the week online.
