WQRT is a new low-power FM station broadcasting out of Listen Hear in the Garfield Park neighborhood of Indianapolis. It’s a project of the nonprofit arts organization, Big Car Collaborative.
"Low-power" means that this is a real radio signal from a tower, traveling on the air waves. WQRT is designed to reach our local community—commercial-free. It's small on purpose, and we're going to learn and grow together in creative ways. Sure, we'll get into streaming, but let's kick it off by talking to each other first, with a sweet soundtrack 24/7.
For now, in BETA MODE, we’re playing a mix of music in blocks that we hope you enjoy:
9:00am to 4:15pmMid-day Atmosphere(mostly instrumental, pretty chill)
4:15pm to 11:00pmCruise Control (picking up the pace a bit with a mix of styles)
11:00pm to 9:00amRhinestone Country(classic country for walkin' after midnight)
ALL DAY SATURDAYSoul Glow(old school R&B, soul, funk)ALL DAY SUNDAYRhinestone Country returns for everyone to enjoy. We know you love it.
While the music rolls, we're actively working toward adding in local music of all kinds, plus educational, cultural and community programming over time. And we hope that it will include YOU. Stay tuned, friends—we're just getting started!
