DJ of the Month!

Michael D.

WXDU's Americana Director offers up some of the best things (old, new and in varied genres) he's heard so far in 2015:


Listen on Your Phone!

No, we don't have a custom WXDU iPhone app. We've found something BETTER: an app that will let you listen to any streaming radio station: TuneIn Radio, powered by TuneIn.com. It allows you to record, pause & rewind streams, view cover art & artist info. And it's available for iPhoneAndroid, Palm and Blackberry!
