Owens Daniels

WSNC 90.5 FM listener-members can receive a t-shirt with the image of a local jazz music performer with a gift to the station of $40 or more.

"Photographer Owens Daniels was generous enough to allow WSNC radio to use images from a one-man show he presented called, 'Birth Of the Cool,' said WSNC's Acting General Manager, Ben Donnelly. "The exhibit included photographs of some of Winston-Salem's best-known jazz musicians including trumpeter Joe Robinson, bass player Matt Kendrick and singer Diana Tuffin."

Come hear all the tunes from the Charlie Brown Christmas Special played by Federico Pivetta-piano, Matt Kendrick-bass and John Wilson-drums. In the second half they are joined by The Winston-Salem Children's Chorus under the direction of Dr. Sonja Sepulveda. They sing and do some dances too. This show will get your holiday spirit going.  Salem College Fine Arts Center, Shirley Recital Hall, 500 East Salem Avenue. Bring the kids! Information at

WSNC is back! 

We didn't really go anywhere, but we're back at full power for the first time since summer.  Listeners should notice an immediate improvement in coverage area.

Our new transmitter should last for several decades, but now we need to pay for it. Make a donation today. You can even become a sustaining member to keep WSNC coming your way for years to come.

At long last, WSNC has a new transmitter. 

We have been broadcasting at reduced power on a rented transmitter for months. Back during the summer, our old transmitter took an unannounced early retirement leaving us scrambling to stay on the air.

As soon as the new equipment can be properly installed, we will be available at higher quality over a larger listening area.

Professional broadcast equipment is not cheap, but it should last for decades.

Help us financially by becoming a sustaining member today.

Enjoy a performance by the United States Navy Band Jazz Commodores, Sunday, November 12, 8 p.m. at the UNC School of the Arts Stevens Center. The public is invited, but reservations are requested by calling the box office at 336-721-1945.

The Piedmont Wind Symphony continues the tradition of bringing world-class artists to our community during the holiday season. This December Piedmont Wind Symphony is thrilled to announce a performance with internationally renowned jazz vocalist, triple Grammy® winner and TONY® winner, Dee Dee Bridgewater.
