WDAV’s Celebrates 40 Years
November 30 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
89.9 WDAV Classical Public Radio invites the community to its 40th birthday party. On December 1, 1978, Charlotte’s cultural landscape was transformed with the flip of a switch. Ever since the first electromagnetic waves carrying classical music emerged from the 20,000-watt radio station located in tiny Davidson, North Carolina, fans across the region have been tuning to the steady source of Bach, Beethoven, and other great composers. 40 years later, WDAV is one of the leading classical stations in the country, with more than 135,000 listeners per week.
The celebration kicks off in grand style when the station opens its doors to the public for its 40th birthday party. Guests can nosh on desserts and hot apple cider while taking in performances by area musicians. Door prizes will be awarded while WDAV staff, including beloved announcers, will provide tours of the station.
WDAV is located at 423 N. Main St., Davidson, NC 28036.
