If you’ve been to this site before, you’re probably wondering what the hell we did to it. Even if you weren’t all that attached to the old look of the site, change can be a scary thing. Some of the changes should be immediately apparent, while some you may not notice right away—so I thought it’d be worth laying-out some of the key differences between the old and new site designs.

Know that these changes are only the start of what we have planned. Over the next few weeks, we’ve got a lot of exciting things to say about the sort of content you’re going to see on the new site. More print, more audio, more video. Now’s a better time than ever to join the cult of WNUR.

Enjoy the new site!

We apologize for any inconvenience listeners may have experienced with the recent downtime on our live stream. We take our online broadcasting very seriously, and we’re happy to report that our problems seem to be resolved. WNUR is back on the Web, 24/7, like you’ve come to expect. Our stream should function much more reliably now as well, so we’ll be able to avoid incidents like this going forward.

If you’re having problems with other applications or players, you may need to update the URL of our stream. This is the new URL: http://sc1.spacialnet.com:32660/listen.pls.

Thanks, and stay tuned to this site in the coming weeks for some really exciting stuff to come!

Due to important studio maintenance, we will be airing archived programming from Sept. 4 – 7. We will not have live DJs on-the-air during this time and consequently playlist information for archived programming will not be available. We expect to resume live programming on Sept. 8.

Additionally, our web stream has been having some technical difficulties recently. We are working hard to restore it to capacity and apologize for any downtime or errors you might experience. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Thanks for listening!
