WCPE is a non-commercial, independent, listener-supported station dedicated to excellence in classical music broadcasting. WCPE’s music selection and presentation make it the radio station of choice for listeners seeking accessible classical music 24 hours a day.

WCPE has adhered to one philosophy since 1982: to deliver the finest classical music programming and the highest quality broadcast signal around the clock. With the emergence of satellite and Internet technology, that commitment now embraces a global audience.

We believe that WCPE enhances the cultural climate of our listening areas. Studies citing the high quality of life in the area consistently name WCPE as a factor.

When one combines the dedication of its committed volunteers and staff, the financial support of its loyal listeners, and grants from caring businesses and foundations, it adds up to a remarkable example of community involvement, partnership, and enrichment that will continue to benefit or listening areas for years to come.
