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.

App has greatly improved!

Proud to say that WCPE is my local Classical Station, and proud to share it with the world! The app was nearly unusable when first launched, but it’s improved, likely because of listener feedback. I mainly use the app to find out what’s playing, and the new prominent right up front “what’s playing now” feature is great. I wish the chart listing the programs & pieces for the day was more mobile friendly. It’s hard to see even in landscape mode! Here’s hoping you’ll continue with the improvements to the app as you have to the station, taking it from hyper local to worldwide!

Fantastic radio station, great app

WCPE is my all-time favorite classical station. The staff's dedication to classical music shines through on a daily basis. I've heard unfamiliar pieces composed by old familiars like Beethoven, works by 18th Century composers I'd never heard of and new music from these times.

WGBH in Boston used to my favorite decades ago. I was shocked at how superficial and repetitive its programming had become when I tuned in recently. That will never happen with WCPE!
