Recognition from listeners
This just in! WOWD won second place in the “Best Radio Station” category in the Washington City Paper's Best of DC-2018 readers poll. The sole station with more votes than us was 50,000-watt National Public Radio powerhouse WAMU. Coming in at # 2 is quite an honor for a low-power, grass-roots, not-yet-two-years-old station like Takoma Radio.
We’re so thrilled that City Paper readers recognized something special and enticing about WOWD’s programming. We offer the most diverse lineup of programming on the DC airwaves, produced and hosted by volunteers who are passionate about what they broadcast, whether it’s a music show presenting blues, indie rock, reggae, tango, Americana, ambient, Latin, folk ballads, R&B, or heavy metal or a talk show covering books or local public affairs.
Also, kudos to WOWD’s Robbie White (co-host of Forbidden Alliance, Sundays 9 am to noon), who came in # 2 in the readers’ poll for “Best DJ” citywide.
