For the Love of Music

Feb 22, 2021

This Spring, we’ll be celebrating our love of music! We know that music is one of the finest things in our lives. It’s something positive that's getting us through this long pandemic winter.

In preparation for our Spring Drive, we want to know what you love about music.

Any music.



WSCL’s over-the-air signal has been experiencing some intermittent dropouts recently due to the microwave link which connects our studio location in Salisbury, MD, to our tower in Seaford, DE. We have purchased a new amplifier in order to correct this problem and anticipate it will be installed soon.

WSCL’s digital signal is unaffected by this issue and the station can be streamed online via web browser, smartphone app, or smart speaker.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and loyal listening.

Welcome to Salisbury University’s Cultural Calendar Highlights for the week of February 1.

Delmarva Radio Theatre Presents “Departures.”

The radio drama “Departures” is adapted from a short story of the same name by Bohdan Dowhaluk  published in volume 13 of the Delmarva Review. In addition to the radio play, the program includes a short review of the history of radio theatre and an interview with Mr. Dowhaluk.  The drama was produced on Zoom and features actors with The Community Players of Salisbury. The story is about an aging professor seeking to find himself, and his encounter with a fiery redhead in a hotel room. Their relationship is both humorous and tragic.

Christmas Eve

Noon- A Baroque Noel with Pegasus Early Music

11AM Every Good Thing

6-11PM October 31st on WSDL 90.7 FM

Wondering what to do this Halloween? Unable to get out to a party this year? Don't fret- let WSDL 90.7 bring the party to you! 

We begin at 6PM with a special Halloween edition of the Retro Cocktail Hour- be sure to make Bloody Marys and Zombies!

Then, the Juke in the Back brings you some vintage horror themed RnB at 8PM.

The 2019-2020 season of Metropolitan Opera has concluded, but there are still plenty of reasons to keep WSCL 89.5 on on Saturday afternoon.

At noon, we continue to air Live from the Grand Teton Music Festival. Conductor Donald Runnicles brings you highlights from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. When that series concludes, we will bring you the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.

We may not be able to go outside, but we still can enjoy a symphony orchestra every evening on WSCL 89.5FM.

Here is a neat idea- take a break from the internet and bad news on cable tv by having an "electronics fast".

Instead, prepare dinner with your family at 6pm while you listen to Explorning Music.

Then, reward yourself with a family dinner while you listen to a world-class symphony at 7PM!

Here is the Spring evening concert series, starting next week. All programs begin at 7PM.

To celebrate National Poetry Month, on each Thursday Morning in April, at 9:00 am on Delmarva Public Radio WSDL 90.7, we will present a talk by a distinguished regional poet and teacher.
