Love it!

I ask Alexa to play “WKSU” each morning and it is on for the better part of the day. Being from NEOH, but living in NEPA, it keeps me in touch with OH where my family still lives. I also use the app in the car because my local station is quite spotty (and I prefer the news programs on WKSU). I’m a sustaining member of both stations, but listen predominantly to WKSU. Thanks so much.

It’s like coming home.

I grew up in Kent and lamented leaving WKSU behind when I lived away to school. There is no equal to its classical and folk programming. NPR programs are always great but readily available in the areas where I lived since but the musical variety were sorely missed. I was elated to find the app and its my go-to classical fix now. Thank you for such excellent programs and hosts!

Excellent app for national and local public radio

I've used many public radio apps and WKSU is really punching above its weight with this one. I much prefer it to the current versions (summer 2019) of the apps from NPR, KPCC, and WNYC. I like its ease of use and straightforward design.
