WYSO will add a new locally hosted music program to its lineup on Monday, March 5.  Equinox, which takes its name from the classic John Coltrane composition, is a weekly, three-hour jazz radio show. Each Monday night, host Duante Beddingfield will lead listeners on a journey through straight-ahead jazz, from classic tracks to the latest releases, including local musicians, obscure performers, and artists from all over the world putting their own unique stamp on the music.

WYSO's engineers will be conducting maintenance on our transmitter on Friday, December 29, 1-2pm.  Listeners may experience outages of our FM and HD signals during this time. The web stream will be unaffected.  

Thanks for your patience,

The WYSO Team

Hi friends,

As you know, we made a change to our Saturday morning line-up this fall when we put Dinner Party Download on at 10 AM, where Car Talk was heard for years.

We didn’t know it when we signed up, but we learned in late October that Dinner Party Download from APM is ending its run.  We’re bummed.  We don’t like changing programs this fast, but we have no choice.

Luckily, we’re in a golden age of radio creativity.  A new generation is making great programs and there are several really good choices.

Dear WYSO Listeners,

Soon we will make two program changes to our Saturday schedule.

As you may know, Tom Magliozzi, one the two brothers who hosted Car Talk on NPR passed away  three years ago.  With his brother Ray, they began their national radio show in 1987.  Since Tom’s passing, NPR has distributed “The Best of Car Talk.

Starting this fall, there will be no new “Car Talk”  programs, so instead of continuing to air re-runs on WYSO, we’ve decided to put a new program in its place.

WYSO will add a new locally hosted music program to its Tuesday night lineup.  Tables of Content will take listeners into the sub-genres of modern day Hip Hop, exploring the art-form and its effect on music, culture and politics.  

Host Jason Jordan, who will go by the name 3J the DJ on the air, is a Dayton native and musician with a deep seated love and knowledge of the genre.

WYSO Back on the Air

Apr 29, 2017

WYSO is back on the air after an outage due to Saturday morning's massive lightning storm throughout the Miami Valley. Thank you for your patience and your support of WYSO.

WYSO recently made some upgrades to our online streaming that may have resulted in interruptions for some users:

If you're used to streaming WYSO through an internet radio, and have been having difficulty, please update your stream URL to: http://playerservices.streamtheworld.com/pls/WYSOFM.pls on your device.

If you're using TuneIn (the app or via another service like Sonos) to stream WYSO, the issue we had been experiencing has now been repaired.
