Okay, we don't always rock. Sometimes we chill. Sometimes we groove. Sometimes we shuffle. Sometimes we swing. Sometimes we boogie. Sometimes we shake. Sometimes we rattle. And sometimes...we roll.
But we ALWAYS have a good time playing great music no matter what the style, and we ALWAYS do it commercial-free. That's why WNKU's been voted Best Radio Station in Cincinnati by CityBeat readers more than any other radio station in the history of radio stations ever
How do we play such great music with no commercials ever, you ask? Why, listener support, of course! And now we're asking YOU for your support all this week during WNKU's fall membership drive.

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. –Dust is flying, insults are being lobbed across the proverbial aisle and the siege of television commercials has begun. Ahh, election season in America.

WNKU welcomes The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band (featuring Cincinnati's own, Noah Hunt) and the Robert Cray Band to the Taft Theatre on Sunday, September 16th. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more impressive co-bill of legendary guitarists on tour, so we're pretty excited about the show.
