About Oklahoma’s Voice for Performing Arts

KUCO is a community-supported outreach of the University of Central Oklahoma. As the state’s exclusive locally programmed performing arts music station, Classical KUCO broadcasts from its studios at UCO’s Santa Fe Plaza learning center in vibrant downtown Oklahoma City. Its reach extends to the communities of Edmond and all of central Oklahoma on 90.1 FM, while also connecting with listeners across the state through repeater stations in McAlester (KBCW 91.9 FM) and Woodward (KCSC 95.9 FM) Oklahoma. Serving as Oklahoma’s Voice for Performing Arts, Classical KUCO informs audiences about community events, showcases talented local artists, and presents complete musical works rarely found elsewhere on the airwaves or online.

KUCO supports the Public Media Code of Integrity and UCO’s principles of Diversity.
