Bipartisan Congressional Resolutions Applaud Local Public Radio Music Stations’ Service to Listeners, Artists Communities

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 12, 2020) The noncomMUSIC Alliance today announced that the inaugural Public Radio Music Day will take place on April 16, 2020, with a nationwide celebration uniting public radio music stations, fans, and performers to spread the word about the special role public radio plays in the music world locally and nationally. More than 20 million listeners weekly tune in to hundreds of local noncommercial music stations across America to discover, learn about, and enjoy an eclectic mix of music selections, artists, and genres that are, in many cases, available only on public radio.

Yesterday, a bipartisan group of Members of Congress introduced Resolutions in both the Senate and the House of Representatives officially designating April 16, 2020 as Public Radio Music Day. The Congressional Resolutions express appreciation for local public radio music stations and their service to listeners, musicians, and hundreds of communities across the United States. They recognize local, noncommercial, nonprofit, public radio stations provide an essential platform for boosting artists and music discovery, and educating and enriching communities.

On April 16, 2020, local stations across the country will celebrate Public Radio Music Day with a range of special activities, including: live local events and performances, dedicated studio sessions, special programming and hand-curated playlists, and fan and artist stories. Live events are being planned in Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Nashville, Seattle, Portland, Atlanta, Lexington, KY, Oklahoma City, Rochester, NY, and more communities nationwide. Participating public radio music stations are indicated on this website map, which will be continually updated with additional stations and local activities taking place on Public
