Wisconsin Public Radio is happy to announce an additional feature

essentially double our service to listeners in these areas."

The program schedule for the 24-Hour HD2 Classical service
includes the existing Weekday 9am to 3pm, and Saturday 10am to 4pm periods of classical music broadcast by WPR's NPR News & Classical Music
Network. In addition, we're happy to include recordings of The Milwaukee Symphony every Sunday at 2pm.
Programming for other days and times is provided by WPR's partners in the "Classical-24" network. For music listings and host information,
If you'd like to hear what our new service sounds like, but you don't yet own an HD Radio, visit our

HD2 All Classical stream.
"Wisconsin Public Radio is proud to be a pioneer in this new field of broadcasting. We're really looking forward to the new signals and services
possible with this new technology."
