WQXR New York Classical Music

WQXR New York Classical Music


WQXR is New York City's premiere classical music radio station. Unlike most “jukebox” apps, WQXR is curated by hosts who are knowledgeable and passionate about classical music. And with this app, both music fanatics and new listeners can discover and enjoy classical music on the go.

The WQXR Android app includes these features:
* Our live radio streams
* Archived shows
* Real-time playlists with information on recordings
* Breaking classical music news articles
* Event listings
* Podcasts
* An alarm clock & time sleeper

Broadcasting from atop the Empire State Building, WQXR has been a cultural institution of New York City for 75 years. In addition to the classical cannon, the station produces original shows such as Metropolitan Opera Radio Saturday Matinee Broadcasts, The Philharmonic This Week on Thursday evenings, All Ears with Terrance McKnight and Movies on the Radio hosted by David Garland. WQXR also presents live performances from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, original digital video series such as Café Concerts, and podcasts such as Conducting Business.

Our hosts include Jeff Spurgeon in the morning, Midge Woolsey and Naomi Levin in the afternoons and Elliott Forrest during the weekend brunch hour. WNYC's David Garland and Terrance McKnight host classical music in the evenings.

Q2 Music is WQXR's online-only radio stream. With a more contemporary focus than WQXR, it features large-scale festival programming as well as live concerts from venues around New York, including our own Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. Hosted Q2 programs include Hammered!, The New Cannon and a new composers' show hosted by Nadia Sirota.

WQXR is a member-supported station that is part of the New York Public Radio family. The app is free to download and use, but we encourage you to pledge your support with a tap on the thumbs-up Support button. The app was funded by our membership's generous contributions.

The WQXR app was developed in collaboration with Public Radio Exchange (PRX), which also designed and developed our WNYC app. Based in Cambridge, MA, PRX has developed apps for This American Life as well as other Public Radio stations.

Neglected Uff! I am a huge fan of WQXR so it pains me to write this. Seems like this app has not been updated in almost 1.5 years and the app is woefully underperforming. Current version crashes upon trying to play a stream on my Nexus 5 mobile. Poor app experience for sure. Looks like I'll have to stick to TuneIn to get my WQXR.

It doesn't work AT ALL on my Android tablet. The icon scrolls as if it is broadcasting, but NO sound comes out.
