We are pleased to confirm that WOSU will begin providing a new all-classical music radio service with the premiere of Classical 101 at 101.1 FM in Columbus tomorrow morning. We’ll be on the air at 6 am with a special welcome from Ohio State President Gordon Gee followed by local Classical Host Boyce Lancaster with his new morning classical program from 6 am to 10 am. I’ll try to post pictures and some audio tomorrow. See much more about WOSU’s plan to bring all classical and all news programming to central Ohio here.

    I started out as an intern at WOSU 820. My last radio airdate was on 820 (December 20, 2008). Irony. But t’s a new dcay and I’m ready for 89.7 (again) … can you use an anchor? :)))) Really …

    I would like to congratulate WOSU about its programming decisions regarding the switch to the FM dial for both classical programming and all news and interview programs.

    Also, I really appreciate having the BBC World News America. It is interesting to get a somewhat different perspective on the news. I found it entertaining that the BBC program spent an entire show reporting on the sentencing of Michael Jackson’s doctor.

    B-o-o-o-o-o ! I am sad to see WOSU am go to 89.7 fm. I listened to Bluegrass Ramble on my 60 year old Crosley floor radio for a long time. Nothing sounds as good as old time radio on an old time radio. Sure, I can pick it up on my Japanese fm radio, but it will never be the same.

    What was the name of the classical piece used as a theme song for “In the Bookstall?
