On November 30, the music played on 91.1 FM will change. When this occurs, classical music will move to digital platforms only. Here’s a quick Q&A on how to receive the digital signal.
How can I listen to classical music when the switch is made?
You will be able to access the classical station by streaming on your computer at nashvilleclassicalradio.org, on your phone through the Nashville Public Radio app, through your smart speakers (Alexa, Google, etc.), and on WPLN’s 90.3 FM HD2 station on HD radio. (Classical music is already airing on WPLN HD2.)
What is HD radio? How do I know if I have it?
HD radio is comparable to HDTV. Because we broadcast 90.3 FM digitally, this single frequency delivers up to four stations in crystal-clear sound. Another bonus for you as a listener: the digital signal provides on-screen information such as station name, program, album art, song info, traffic, weather and more.

Will I be able to play the classical station on my car radio?
Many cars are now equipped with HD radio. Visit https://hdradio.com/get-a-radio/ to see if your vehicle already has an HD radio.
