The History of Delmarva Public Radio
Licensed to the Salisbury University Foundation, Delmarva Public Radio began broadcasting classical music to the Delmarva Peninsula as WSCL, 89.5 FM on May 29, 1987.Eleven years later, on February 13, 1998, we added WSDL, 90.7 FM. We are now able to broadcast the world’s finest classical music and news and information programs twenty-four hours a day and have even added live internet streaming. Delmarva Public Radio has, through the generosity of Salisbury University, been located in Caruthers Hall on the campus since 1986.
The landscape of the Eastern Shore has changed quite a bit in the past twenty years, and Delmarva Public Radio has become a fixture of the Shore’s artistic and cultural life.We currently have over forty thousand regular listeners with a contributing membership of over three thousand. The future of radio is an exciting one, and we plan to be there, providing the same quality that you have come to expect. As we reflect upon our first twenty years, we must say “thank you” to all of our listeners, contributors, staffers, volunteers, and corporate underwriters.Without you, none of this would have been possible. With your continued support, we look forward to our next twenty years being even better.
