WBJC's monthly newsletter to keep you informed about programming highlights, upcoming local events and general station news. 
WBJC is the only station that brings you classical music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As other classical public radio stations around the country go off the air, eliminate their local announcers, reduce or do away with classical music completely, WBJC has committed itself to bringing you the music you want to hear. But that commitment truly depends on you.

We know there are many worthy charities asking for your support this time of year, and we ask that you keep us in mind when deciding where to make your donations.

Join WBJC in celebrating the Winter Holidays!

On Booknotes this month,  Agatha Christie’s iconic detective story, Murder on the Orient Express, has been adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig. The Everyman Theatre’s Founding Artistic Director, Vincent Lancisi, directs.

Happy December, everyone! If you are a professional musician, this means you (hopefully) have lots of holiday-related work to do this month. This also means that a lot of the music going on is of the traditional variety, in the holiday spirit, but there is still new music to be heard this month...
