On The Radio, At 103.5 FM

Getty ImagesWe broadcast at 103.5 FM on weekdays from 4 a.m. through 3:59 p.m. Another organization has the license for the evenings, but doesn’t plan to be on the air until some time later in 2016. We also broadcast during assorted hours on the weekends. A note: we have a low-power FM license. That means you can pick up the station through most of New Haven (except the southern tip and sometimes downtown) and Hamden and much of East Haven, North Haven, Woodbridge, and West Haven.

I want to say please wait and enjoy the ride.”
