IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a complete list of programs available on WAMU FM

The items have been selected as the better choices around the country on which to hear a program, based mostly on:

  • Carrying the entire show, preferably live
  • Not forcing a prestream advertisement, (unless all stations do)
  • Support for non-Windows options - Macs, mobile devices and Linux,
  • Not preempting talk shows for sports,
  • Stability of the programming schedule
  • Accuracy of the station's web site,
  • Recorded Show is not available 24/7 or via podcast for free from the distributor,
  • Quality of the streaming audio
  • Interesting show for "out of market" listeners
  • Limited availability of the show even if it doesn't fit the above criteria

If you would like to see the complete programming schedule for WAMU FM, you can follow the link(s) provided on the left side of this page or visit the radio station's web site by clicking on the station name.
