Started in 1959, WCWM is the student-run radio station for the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. We have a broadcasting range of approximately 30 miles, reaching from the outermost edges of Richmond all the way to Newport News. Our DJs are either current students or faculty members at the College who volunteer their time without any compensation or incentive beyond the magic of being on the radio and beaming music to your stereo.
Though we began as a station that only aired part-time and was wholly devoted to classical music, we now broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a programming lineup that seeks to encompass as many different themes, genres, and formats as possible. We broadcast with the intention of exposing listeners to a diverse selection underground and independent music, whether it be from up-and-coming artists or from older, forgotten favorites. Shows range from all-purpose variety to rap, international, folk, talk, psychedelic, soul, electronica, metal, experimental, shoegaze, the hybrid offspring of the aforementioned, and even some genres that haven’t been officially recognized by The Man yet.
