In his March 31 letter, Alfred Brooks laments the absence of a classical radio station in Miami and goes on to describe WLRN Public Radio as “just another talk-radio station.”
Brooks seems unaware that last summer WLRN brought back classical music to South Florida’s airwaves.
WLRN’s HD-2 radio channel allows listeners to enjoy classical music 24 hours a day through HD-capable radios, live-stream on wlrn.org as well as WLRN’s iPhone and android apps.
Classical music as a standalone format isn’t financially sustainable as demonstrated by the sale of what was WTMI more than a decade ago and, most recently, the loss of Classical South Florida. But when combined alongside WLRN’s powerhouse National Public Radio and local news format, classical music thrives.
Never miss a local story.
We understand the importance and impact that classical music has in our community and we will continue to provide this service far into the future.
