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!


The WXDU Archives

 October 2013 marked our 30th year on the air, and in celebration we launched an ongoing project to put archival material online.
