WKCR is Columbia's non-commercial, student-run radio station broadcasting throughout the New York Metro area at 89.9 FM and streaming around the world at Since its inception in 1941, WKCR has stood strong against the tide of commerce in defense of art. As a public radio station free from commercial and political pressures, WKCR gives top priority to meaningful art; Louis Armstrong, J.S. Bach, Bessie Smith, and many other geniuses are broadcast staples that grace WKCR's airwaves daily. WKCR applies to this artistic spectrum the stated goals of Columbia University: education and research. The mission of education is twofold, offering listeners informed programming with historical emphasis while training undergraduates in understanding the art forms as well as the style and science of presenting them on radio. Email:
