Listen to WDAV Classical Public Radio radio online from The United States
WDAV 89.9, a service of Davidson College and licensed to the Trustees of Davidson College, is a member-supported public radio station providing classical music and cultural arts programming 24 hours each day.
WDAV signed on in 1973 as a student-run college radio station, taking over from a carrier current station that had been on the air since 1969.
The format included jazz, rock music, and educational programs. In 1978, it was upgraded to a full-service professional operation. However, student volunteers quit because they did not want the station to go all classical, and it took three months to return to the air. WDAV became "Your station for the arts" and played mostly classical music.
