LOVE, LOVE this station! Been listening for 20 years, since first moving to Apex, NC. I think it was the first radio station I found! Up until discovering this station, in all the previous places I lived the classical stations were only part-time classical music. To have one to listen day or night, anywhere I am, is absolutely wonderful! I love the music selections, even compared to the classical station on Sirius XM. WCPE is outstanding and I’ve experienced no issues at all with the app in the year or so I’ve been using it. Thank you, 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.
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!
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!
I found it a little confusing when I first started using the app (and even now after using it many months) finding where to start playing the stream, as it is not prominently placed, I mean that is what you use the app for playing the music right?!? The play button just blends in with it's gray color with the rest of the site. Why isn’t the play button on the top of the page and in a contrasting color. I am afraid I have little interest in the rest of the web contents, so 95% of the page is a waste of screen space for me. Other than that WCPE is GREAT!
Growing up in North Carolina, it wasn’t until I moved out of state that I realized what a fantastic station WCPE is. Wherever I lived, none of the local stations could compete. They either had too much news or non-classical programming or oddly avoided many of the great composers. How fortunate that this fantastic app makes WCPE available anywhere. It’s stable and effective and I’m thrilled that it’s available!
I’ve been loving this radio station since I was small, and now I get to carry it everywhere! They’ve consistently improved the app and website to be more user friendly and provide all kinds of programming to every taste. I am a forever fan 💜
With a pair of earbuds and my phone I can basically turn anyplace into a little musical show and I love it, I love listening to classical music when writing and doing homework assignments, it really stirs up the ideas in my head and keeps me focused. Don’t know what I do without it.
I found this station when we were in NC visiting in February. Such a great range of programs and highly enjoyable. I am back in the DC area which has a great classical station but I still still listen to your app.
Have been a long time WCPE listener (1981) & had it preset in my car & home, since. Now living in Forsyth County, your app has become my “go to”, since the radio signal is so weak, this close to WDAV. With my IPhone, your music goes with me now! So happy w/app!
Because I started listening to this station when I lived in Manteo. Use the ap so I can get classical when my station in SF plays opera or modern music that I don’t appreciate. Get my dose of Carolina music. Enjoy the new announcers.
Since becoming a music educator in 2004, WCPE has been a beacon of consistent exposure to great classical music. As I enter my 17th year as a music educator I’m ever appreciative of this nonprofit organization. Thank you to the staff, announcers and sponsors of the greatest classical station worldwide.
WCPE has been my favorite radio station for years, and the app makes listening so convenient. I appreciate the recent addition of currently playing titles on the app. Also, shout out to Rob Kennedy, the favorite announcer in our house.
We love WCPE and are Sustaining Supports. Such friendly voices to hear and knowledgeable. Particularly now that we are limited in where and what we can do, the station is a welcoming voice in our home. Merci Mille fois for enriching our lives.
Love taking WCPE with me wherever I go. Can’t imagine life without your wonderful station and the dedicated staff who truly feel like family. The skies may be grey, but WCPE makes my life bright day and night.
