WXYC 89.3 FM @ UNC-Chapel Hill

"Our disc jockeys harness the almighty power of the segue to draw musical linkages across time, culture and pure sound. For example, you might be humming along to the chorus of your favorite Jay-Z monster, only to hear it followed by the very Bobby "Blue" Bland mega-hit from the '70s from which the sample was lifted." —Jason Perlmutter, former station manager

WKNC 88.1 FM @ N.C. State

"We play everything from indie rock, electronic, hip hop, metal, Americana, blues, jazz and world music. WKNC is a great way to discover music from independent and local artists." —Kelly Reid, daytime music director

WXDU 88.7 FM @ Duke University

"Plenty of stations, including us, have specialty shows where you can hear a particular genre for two hours, but I think WXDU is unique in that you can hear so many different kinds of music within our regular programming, rather than the same old indie rock for hours on end." —Meredith Newmark, general manager

WNCU 90.7 FM @ N.C. Central

"This 24-hour station broadcasts predominately mainstream jazz, [with] Latin jazz, contemporary and traditional gospel, reggae, African and R&B solid gold. The format of this listener-supported station entertains the jazz aficionado, educates the novice jazz listener and disseminates national and local news and information relative to the community at large." —Edith Thorpe, general manager

WSHA 88.9 FM @ Shaw University

"WSHA jazz and blues music programming is focused, consistent, educational and entertaining for the intellectuals from students to professionals. As the only public radio station serving the community with live remote broadcast system, we challenge you to invite us to your living room for a live broadcast." —Dr. Emeka Emekauwa, station manager
