WSCL 89.5 Opera Changes

Nov 22, 2016

Delmarva Public Radio regrets to inform our listeners that our regular Saturday Afternoon program, “World Of Opera” will be coming to a close. World of Opera, a production of  WDAV Classical Public Radio and South Carolina Public Radio, is unable to continue to produce this program due to circumstances beyond their control. The European Broadcasting Union is no longer able to provide the opera recordings used in the majority of World of Opera productions.

SALISBURY, MD---To the average person, Delmarva Public Radio’s (DPR’s) new 20,000-watt transmitters may look like nothing more than big gold-and-silver boxes sealed away in concrete sheds on the outskirts of Seaford and Roxana, DE.

To DPR General Manager Dana Whitehair, however, they look like the future.

Replacing the stations’ 30-year-old transmitters — one still using vacuum tube technology and the other a prototype model (serial No. 00001) — is the latest step in upgrading DPR’s broadcasting equipment — and, along with it, sound quality and reliability.

Ring in the holidays, do some shopping, and support Delmarva Public Radio all at the same time! DPR’s 2016 A Silent Night Out and Christmas Market takes place Thursday, December 1st at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach Thursday, December first from 5-7:30PM . Scrumptious appetizers, desserts, refreshments, music, strolling carolers, silent auctions, and local vendors with unique holiday gift items.
