Introducing the KAMU-Classical/HD-2 – Texas A&M Today

0

KAMU-Classical (HD-2) is Aggieland’s new radio station featuring 24/7 classical music programming and longtime KAMU favorites such as Performance today, pipedreams and Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin.

It’s a free HD Radio® station that can be listened to in most vehicles, on your computer, smartphone, tablet or other smart device, and on home or portable HD radios.

What is HD Radio®?

Hybrid digital radio is a technology that allows KAMU to broadcast programs via a high quality digital signal. These signals are free of static or interference and deliver cleaner, richer sound. HD Radio® is not satellite radio, like SiriusXM. An HD Radio® receives programming, including regular FM stations such as KAMU, at no charge.

If you don’t already know how to find KAMU-Classical (also known as HD-2), the information below should help.

Listen in your car, at home

If you have HD Radio®—in your home, vehicle, or as a portable device—simply tune it to 90.9 KAMU-FM and wait a few seconds for the HD® logo to light up and/or the digits 1 and 2 to appear. These numbers allow you to select and listen to KAMU’s two noise-free music streams for free:

  • HD-1: (KAMU 90.9-1): This is the higher quality version of the 90.9 FM broadcast.
  • HD-2: (KAMU-Classic 90.9-2): It’s the new classical music channel.

Listen online

The easiest way to listen to KAMU-Classical or KAMU on your computer or smart device is to use the appropriate live streaming link on our Live listening webpage through your favorite web browser.
