Discover Classical 88.1 & 89.9 FM is a member supported, 24-hour commercial free classical radio station broadcasting from the heart of downtown Dayton, Ohio. The station reaches audiences throughout the Miami and Whitewater Valleys on transmitters in Dayton (WDPR) and Greenville (WDPG), and streams across the globe on virtually any device at discoverclassical.org. Discover Classical is one of a small handful (about two dozen!) of classical public radio stations in the entire country, and celebrate that while most cities are not able to sustain such a community treasure, this station has been on the air for nearly 28 years!
Discover Classical is proud to serve local arts organizations by promoting events, producing live interviews on their ArtsFocus program, and broadcasting performances of local groups like the Dayton Philharmonic, Chamber Music Yellow Springs, and the Bach Society of Dayton on their originally produced Saturday morning program, Live and Local. Perhaps the favorite service to the greater Dayton community is their annual Young Talent Search competition. The Young Talent Search finalists, each 18 years old and younger, are interviewed and aired on ArtsFocus. They also perform a recital at the University of Dayton’s Sears Recital Hall that is free to the public and later broadcast on Discover Classical for all listeners to hear. Whether you are a long-time lover of classical music or ready to broaden your musical horizons, tune in at 88.1 & 89.9 FM, or stream live on any device at dicoverclassical.org. This Dayton Original is not just a final destination, but a starting point for the discovery of classical music!
