After the plug was officially pulled on WQNA 88.3 FM community radio as we know it one week ago, yesterday the station was successful in at least getting a live stream back up on the internet as it had been when the station was in full force. You can find that at listen.wqnaradio.org. The actual frequency of 88.3 fm was bought out by a Catholic Radio Group from the CACC which decided to sell the station and give up the school’s radio program earlier this year. We would imagine most of what is streaming right now is automated programing since it is hard for a lot of former shows on WQNA (including The Dumb Records Radio Show) to continue with programing without a studio in place. Maybe our other “True Freak Radio” show will still be put on the live stream at Fridays at midnight, and we will be looking into possibly starting The Dumb Records Radio Show back up into the live stream at it’s Friday 4:00 pm time-slot soon.
Fundraising efforts to get the station back on air (potentially on a different frequency) are still underway, and there is a benefit show set up at our space here at Dumb Records on Friday, December 13th. There is also an ongoing GoFundMe campaign set up online right here.
