Saturday March 2: CMU maintenance may affect WRCT webstream

CMU has scheduled systems maintenance on part of the campus on Saturday, March 2. As a result, there may be intermittent outages or audio delays on WRCT’s webstream from early Saturday morning until 9:30 or 10:00 a.m.

Thank you for your patience during any outages. And thank you for your continued support of WRCT, Pittsburgh!

50 Years of WRCT 88.3 FM

50 years ago, on March 1st, 1974, our station expanded from the AM carrier current to what you know it as today – WRCT 88.3 FM. We have two celebrations this year, as the station was originally created from a few radio curious engineering students and professors back in 1949 (this year marks our 75th year broadcasting, so stay tuned for more anniversary events during Spring Carnival!)

After 25 years of cranking out music just far enough to reach our campus community – at the time it was Carnegie Tech – the station hit the FM waves for the very first time. Even though we barely reached beyond campus, starting off at 10 watts in 1974, WRCT now has a listening radius of 17 miles, broadcasting at 1750 watts, and is now known as a force among college radio stations. Ever since our humble beginnings we’ve been committed to creative content, so thanks to all the students and community members that have helped get us to where we are today!

Celebrate 50 years of free-form FM radio with us Friday, March 1st, and tune in from 2-3pm for an anniversary special!

MMW 2024 Schedule

Starting on Friday February 23! WRCT’s Massive Music Weekend!

We will present 60 hours of non-stop music from our favorite artists, starting at noon on Friday, February 23, 2024, and continuing all weekend long!

Every half-hour we’ll feature a different artist, handpicked for your listening pleasure by our own station members. It’s a massively diverse set of artists this year. You’ll hear some of your favorite artists, some you’ve forgotten about, and some whose music is brand new to you! New this year: We’ll have some live sets of music, too!
