The station’s studios are located in the historic Old Student Union building on the Western Carolina University campus. Although the station maintains a classic rock format, on the weekends and after 6 p.m. it becomes home to a variety of specialty shows hosted by students, faculty, and staff. For instructions on how to listen to our live web-stream click here!

Power 90.5 is a non-commercial radio station operated by volunteers from the student body, faculty, and staff.
