I Grew Up 2 Miles From WCPE

We lived so close to the tower that the speaker wires would pick up the signal, and you could hear it faintly with the volume turned all the way up but no input.

It was always a joy to tune my radio in to listen to WCPE when I lived in Wake Forest, and now that I no longer live in the area, I don’t need to go without it. It’s wonderful that this app has brought us the great classical music we know and love, and in my case grew up with, and for free.

Now I can listen to Dvorak from my hometown radio station whenever I want.

Simply the best...

Growing up in North Carolina, it wasn’t until I moved out of state that I realized what a fantastic station WCPE is. Wherever I lived, none of the local stations could compete. They either had too much news or non-classical programming or oddly avoided many of the great composers. How fortunate that this fantastic app makes WCPE available anywhere. It’s stable and effective and I’m thrilled that it’s available!

I found it a little confusing when I first started using the app (and even now after using it many months) finding where to start playing the stream, as it is not prominently placed, I mean that is what you use the app for playing the music right?!? The play button just blends in with it's gray color with the rest of the site. Why isn’t the play button on the top of the page and in a contrasting color. I am afraid I have little interest in the rest of the web contents, so 95% of the page is a waste of screen space for me.

Other than that WCPE is GREAT!
