Buffalo is lucky to have WBNY Radio (91.3 FM) at Buffalo State. Since 1982, WBNY has been cranking out a solid mix of local and national music, while giving budding deejays the opportunity to go live on air in front of a devoted crowd of listeners.
On Friday, November 4, music lovers from around the globe will celebrate World College Radio Day. Here in WNY, we will be celebrating “Buffalo’s Original Alternative” – WBNY. Not only does the station offer up music, world news, timely discussions, banter, sports, with some ridiculousness along the way, the station also promotes localism. Deejays discuss the city, local and national politics, and issues and Buffalo viewpoints that you might not hear anywhere else (see DJ schedule). WBNY also promotes local bands, not only giving them time on air, but by providing them with the chance to play live at the station. The Local Show airs Thursdays from 7-10pm.
These days, the WBNY tower on the Buffalo State campus broadcasts at 1000 watts, which offers a big boost in coverage.
No matter the day or the time, music lovers can tune into the station to catch up on all of the bands that make listening to music great… well… great! That means that you’re not going to hear any new Phil Collins or Britney Spears. But you might hear Neutral Milk Hotel and The Albrights. And that’s a good thing.
On Friday, November 4, tune into WBNY 91.3FM and support college radio. After that, continue to tune in to hear new and different music that is anything but mainstream.
