It now seems like a long time ago — when people could only enjoy their favorite radio station if they were within a relatively small radius of its broadcast. WKSU addressed this challenge early on by expanding the station's coverage area with the addition of broadcast towers that made it possible for a quarter of Ohio (more than 4 million people) to hear WKSU on radios in their cars, homes and offices. As digital technology rapidly engulfed media distribution worldwide, WKSU added internet streaming to its arsenal — becoming the second station (and the first public radio station) to live stream content in the early '90s.

Now, internet streaming of the broadcast signal is nearly commonplace. If you are at your computer, it's easy to suit your mood at thanks to our four distinct streams: the WKSU broadcast signal, all classical, news and information and Online streaming gives you the ability to change your radio lineup at the click of a button, and offers access worldwide on any computer with a soundcard. You can take WKSU with you, without packing a thing.

And, you are no longer tied to your computer to listen online. The growth of streaming radio has found its way to other platforms that are more portable than even the transistor radios from the long-ago 20th century. WKSU offers free apps that allow you to listen on your iPad, iPhone and Android device. You can now receive all of WKSU's online streams, plus news stories and more from a single tap. Folk Alley's iPhone and Android apps also link to special sidestreams (Irish music in March, holiday music in December, love music in February, etc.).

Want to play WKSU holiday music at a get-together from your phone? Use a mini speaker and it's an instant party! WKSU and Folk Alley can also be easily streamed if your home entertainment setup includes a Roku box, Apple TV, a TV with an internet connection or other streaming media devices. All four WKSU streams are available on iTunes and TuneIn.
