Classical 104.9 FM Turns TWO This Weekend

Mozart helps Classical 104.9 FM celebrate its 2nd birthday on January 27th, 2019

New Orleans Public Radio officially launched our 24-hour classical music station on January 27, 2017. We are thrilled to now be celebrating TWO YEARS of service to our community.

To all of our local underwriters, businesses, supporters, listeners and MEMBERS... thank you!

January 27 is also Mozart's birthday -- and, we don't want to leave him out of the party. Join our local host James Arey during Friday's "Classical New Orleans" for a Mozart-filled morning of music! 

James served as Classical Music Host and Music Director for WWNO from 1999-2007. He relocated to Atlanta with several WWNO staff members after Katrina, and, in 2007, he accepted a position as Music Director at KVNO in Omaha, Nebraska, where he coached young announcers, programmed, and hosted classical music until 2010.
