We offer two weekly request programs at WCPE, The Classical Station.
Every Friday is All-Request Friday here at The Classical Station! We play your requests from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Go ahead and request your favorite piece of classical music, and you can also dedicate it to a person or an occasion. Want to request a long work like a Mahler symphony? Go ahead. If we have room, we will play it. The “Minute Waltz”? That’s fine. We will find room for short pieces too. If a listener requests a piece that we don’t have in our library, we will substitute a similar piece and add your selection to our shopping list. Our collection of 15,000 CDs is pretty extensive; however, from time to time we receive a request for a CD we simply don’t have. Want to know when your selection will be played? You will be able to see the playlist under What’s Playing.
On Saturday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until midnight (all times eastern), you are the music director! The Saturday Evening Request Program has long been a fixture of our programming, and we hope that you will make it part of your weekend listening.
Our request programs fill up very quickly. We suggest that you use the form on the Request pages to submit your request even a couple of days in advance. Typically when a request program is oversubscribed, we will play your request on the next request program. So, for example, if All-Request Friday is full, we will play your request on the Saturday Evening Request Program.
