Support for comes from...


WICN’s approach to broadcasting jazz is different from many other stations.  Our emphasis is not only on the music, but on the story behind it too.  It is not just a continuous stream of music with breaks for commercials, instead, hosts care about the quality of the songs they play and the meanings behind them.  From live interviews with famous or local artists, to live performances in the studio, every broadcast of WICN is unique.  WICN keeps jazz alive at every level: from playing old hits to introducing listeners to new artists.

Supporting WICN is not only about supporting jazz and artists but is also about supporting the cultural economy of Massachusetts.  Bringing business and revenue into Massachusetts are byproducts of WICN’s involvement as a cultural agent.  With its partnerships, WICN helps fill out regional venues while also providing many underprivileged groups a chance to experience nationally and locally known artists free of charge.  WICN is the leading provider of jazz in New England and WICN combines that with roots music, NPR news and public affairs programming that listeners enjoy and appreciate, 24 hours a day, everyday!

Your partnership with WICN also brings you special member benefits including a weekly e-newsletter and WICN member card. Find out more:
