WBAA has added a 24-hour music channel to its FM service.
Listeners with an HD radio receiver can now tune to the HD-1 channel for the full schedule of WBAA's regular FM programming, or to HD-2 for music from XPoNential Radio, produced by WXPN in Philadelphia, the station that also produces "The World Cafe", heard on WBAA-AM at 7 - 9 p.m. weeknights. With a mix of emerging and heritage contemporary musicians, XPoNential Radio serves up an eclectic blend of blues, rock, world, folk and alternative country.
In addition to the music, an HD radio receiver also will dislay song titles and performers. HD radio receivers for your car or home are readily available in the area, or via the NPR Shop.
WBAA-AM (920) converted to HD radio technology in September 2008, and listeners can listen to the full range of AM programs in FM quality stereo with an HD receiver. WBAA-FM (101.3) was converted to HD radio in 2009 at the same time the power was increased to 14,000 watts.
