Wave goes classical

BAR HARBOR — The WRMO (93.7FM) radio signal, formerly “The Wave,” broadcasting from studios at the municipal building here, is set to join the Maine Public Classical network. Maine Public expects that classical music will be on the air by mid-December, representatives said this week.

Maine Public will pay $150,000 for the license to Charles Begin’s Pine Tree Broadcasting. The acquisition was funded by a number of classical music fans from Mount Desert Island and Ellsworth.

The new 93.7 signal will join 99.7 in Waterville, 106.1 in Bangor, 91.5 in Fryeburg and 104.1 in Portland, bringing the total population that can hear Maine Public’s classical music, opera and jazz to over 500,000 people statewide.

Maine Public Classical also is available streaming at MainePublic.org, on a mobile app for smartphones and tablets, and over MPBN’s statewide HD2 Radio signals.
