April is Public Radio Music Month

Music in America would sound very different without public radio.

Cincinnati Pops Conductor John Morris Russell lends his support to Public Radio Music Month.

Across the country, local public radio stations, like WVXU, play an integral role in championing, cultivating and promoting music. On 91.7, you learn about local musicians and performances on Around Cincinnati and Cincinnati Edition – and jazz, and swing programs have a home. Interviews with music legends and emerging artists add to your musical discovery and enjoyment. 

April is Public Radio Music Month. Say #thankspublicradio  for playing the music you love.
