Laramie gets new classical and jazz stations

From a UW press release:

New radio stations offering classical and jazz music can now be heard in Laramie 24 hours daily.

The Wyoming Public Radio (WPR) Network recently launched Classical Laramie KUWY 88.5 FM and Jazz Laramie KUWL 90.1 FM. Both stations feature Laramie weather forecasts and Wyoming Public Radio news, says Roger Adams, Wyoming Public Radio program director.

He says KUWY offers the same classical selection heard until recently on KVOD’s Laramie translator.

“KUWY offers the greatest classical compositions, in their finest recorded performances, introduced by knowledgeable announcers,” Adams says. “It also offers insightful commentary, special shows and features about the music and musicians.”

KUWL showcases the finest performances of jazz, plus BBC World Service news updates at the top of each hour.

“The lineup features music by both renowned masters and exciting new artists, including Clifford Brown, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane and many more,” Adams says.

Classical Laramie and Jazz Laramie are a service of the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Public Radio Network, which also operate the statewide Wyoming Public Radio (WPR), the Classical Channel HD on KUWY-FM in Laramie and Cheyenne, KUWC-FM in Casper and KUWJ-FM in Jackson, as well as associated web sites, podcasts, and streaming Internet audio.
