"Inhale great drafts of space..." Bill McGlaughin chose his theme weeks ago, yet it certainly resonates now. Join us all week at 5:00 pm for Exploring Music when Bill "takes to the open road with the world before him. In the steps of Walt Whitman, he explores the relationship of man to nature as expressed in music. We start this week with Bryn Terfel singing The Vagabond, the words of Robert Lewis Stevenson set to music by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Bill will then 'inhale great drafts of space' with Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, Strauss’ Alpine Symphony, and Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras. Come join us on this colorful musical path."

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement you have sent via email and left on our social media.  Broadcast stations are recognized as essential infrastructure. Thus, we're on air as we have been since 1982, all while taking the recommended precautions, asking staff to work remotely, and minimizing personnel at the station. Like you, WMNR Fine Arts Radio is taking each day as it comes. And like you, we too take comfort in the clarity of classical music, the joy of jazz, the exuberance of Broadway, the resiliency in folk music, the ageless quality of the Great American Songbook, and the timelessness of classic pop, rock, and soul. We’re happy you’re spending time with us and we’re glad to be listening right along with you.

Do you usually enjoy WMNR Fine Arts Radio during your commute or from your office?  You can listen live and find all our FM dial points on our Stations page. You can also tell smart speakers to
 “play WMNR Fine Arts Radio.”

 Together, we’ll enjoy the calm and clarity that classical, and classic, music can bring.

WMNR Behind-the-Scenes Videos

To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, WMNR Fine Arts Radio produced a video featuring 27 broadcasters and staff. The piece is a loving tribute with an inside look at the people who make up the station. Produced by WMNR’s own H. William Stine, with Associate Producer Megan Stine.  After Bill and Megan produced the Anniversary video, they teamed up again for a slightly less serious, but completely accurate, look at our broadcasters.  To view the videos, click the picture.
