The highly successful classical music radio format service of the WFMT Radio Network, the Beethoven Network, celebrates over three decades of service and continues to grow.

The Beethoven Network provides one-hour modules of classical music, taken from WFMT’s extensive library of thousands of recordings.  The service was originally designed to help public radio stations expand their local operation and improve the quality of late night programming.

Designed for you and your listeners, all Beethoven Network hours can be fully customized as your local program product.  The service features flexibility in each hourly module, permitting network or local break opportunities, top-of-the-hour news, underwriting credits or commercials and local program promotions. You can listen to a sample hour by following the link on the right hand side of this page.

Broadcast fees apply for the Beethoven Network; however, you only pay for the hours you use. For more information please contact Estlin Usher, Director of the WFMT Network.

Here are some comments from Program Directors and listeners about the Beethoven Network (all quotes are from letters on file):

“Radio is a companion to people and Peter van de Graaff is an excellent one.  I like his style and format approach. It’s very intelligent programming.”

“We are overwhelmed (but not surprised) by the positive response of our listeners to [BN’s] return to our airwaves. We have a steady stream of comments, and many of them have backed them up with hefty financial contributions.”
