DNA really targets our community with great latin jazz. I really enjoy the latin jazz quarter and fusion latina. DNA also sponsors great events. I regularly attend the events given by the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band.

My husband and I LOVE this station. The hosts who are both paid staff and volunteers are very knowledgable about music. The live broadcasts are energetic and fun. The public events they do in partnership with the University of Miami, Frost School of Music are fantastic and inexpensive to attend. The new series of concerts at the station are intimate and the talent is amazing. We listen in the car, at the office and in our home. Susan

WDNA is the ONLY radio station I listen when I am in the car. Frank in the morning does a wonderful job in playing different music all the time and he is so knowledgeable. When I come back from work I also listen and if I drive in the evening I also tune in WDNA: Fusion Latina, etc. I enjoy going to the concerts at Frost School of Music that are sponsored by WDNA. All in all, this radio station is superb.

Absolutely wonderful. So nice to hear dj's who are knowledgable about music. Have lived all over US, was a music major. WDNA makes it totally unnecessary to have satelite radio in car. I listen to it all day long.

I've been a fan of great music since I was born. Thanks to my late father, I was exposed to everything from classical to 50's pop to jazz and klezmer to r & b, yiddishe pop, opera and Broadway. I come from a very musical family and we not only listened together but we also played together. One sister played piano and cello, the other played piano and accordian and I played piano and clarinet, my father sang and my mother watched and listened. It was wonderful. As I grew up, I discovered New York salsa music, Cuban music and modern jazz. I used to buy a lot of records because no one radio station could satisfy my appetite for diverse cultural music. In all the years I lived in NYC there were some good jazz stations and good classical stations but never was there a radio station which offered a variety of global music. Here in South Florida we have WDNA, 88.9 fm. It is a global radio station servicing a very multi-cultural community. Most of the DJ's are incredibly knowledgeable. They play only the very best music of a particular genre. During the summer months, my husband and I live in Europe where we listen to WDNA online. This way, because of the time difference, we get to hear the shows that we generally miss when in the states. The music is always excellent. The talk shows are always informative and cutting edge. Every morning as I wait for my first cup of coffee, I turn on the radio to Frank Consola's show from 6am til 11am. He is a walking jazz encyclopedia and plays the very best music any jazz fan could possibly desire. WDNA offers quality programming 24/7 and I am deeply grateful and feel so fortunate to have them in my life on a daily basis, wherever I am in the world.
