Jazz, Classical Non-commercial Radio Stations Launched in Laramie
Dec. 19, 2007 -- New radio stations offering classical and jazz music can
now be heard in Laramie 24 hours daily.

The Wyoming Public Radio (WPR) Network recently launched Classical Laramie
KUWY 88.5 FM and Jazz Laramie KUWL 90.1 FM. Both stations feature Laramie
weather forecasts and Wyoming Public Radio news, says Roger Adams, Wyoming
Public Radio program director.

He says KUWY offers the same classical selection heard until recently on
KVOD¹s Laramie translator.

³KUWY offers the greatest classical compositions, in their finest recorded
performances, introduced by knowledgeable announcers,² Adams says. ³It also
offers insightful commentary, special shows and features about the music and
musicians.² 

KUWL showcases the finest performances of jazz, plus BBC World Service news
updates at the top of each hour.

³The lineup features music by both renowned masters and exciting new
artists, including Clifford Brown, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane and many
more,² Adams says. 

Classical Laramie and Jazz Laramie are a service of the University of
Wyoming and the Wyoming Public Radio Network, which also operate the
statewide Wyoming Public Radio (WPR), the Classical Channel HD on KUWY-FM in
Laramie and Cheyenne, KUWC-FM in Casper and KUWJ-FM in Jackson, as well as
associated Web sites, podcasts, and streaming Internet audio.
