Take WDAV with you anywhere

WDAV can go with you wherever your smartphone does.

The Davidson classical station has created Android, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps that make live streams and on-demand programming available anywhere. The apps are free, and they're available from the Android Market and the iTunes App Store.

The apps hook listeners up with live streams of WDAV's main channel -- the one that goes out over the air on 89.9 FM -- or its Spanish-English "Concierto" programming. There's also a library of WDAV's original programs, such as "Carolina Live" and "Biscuits and Bach." Listeners can bookmark programs for later listening, share bookmarks via email, or turn WDAV's music into a wake-up call.

"I hope our loyal listeners will soon download, rank and comment on their listening experience with the new apps," WDAV's Rachel Stewart said in a statement, "and let us know their suggestions for new features!"
