KAMU-Classical (HD-2) is Aggieland’s newest radio station featuring 24/7 classical music programming and longtime KAMU favorites such as Performance Today, Pipedreams and Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin.

It’s a free HD Radio® station that can be listened to in most vehicles, on your computer, your smart phone, tablet or other smart device, and on home or portable HD radios.

What Is HD Radio®?

Hybrid Digital radio is a technology that enables KAMU to broadcast programs through a high-quality digital signal. These signals are free of static or interference and feature cleaner, richer sound. HD Radio® is not satellite radio, such as SiriusXM. An HD Radio® receives programming, including regular FM stations such as KAMU’s at no cost.

If you don’t already know how to find KAMU-Classical (also known as HD-2), the information below should help.

Listening In Your Car, At Home

If you own an HD Radio® — in your home, in your vehicle, or as a portable device — simply tune it to 90.9 KAMU-FM and wait a few seconds for the HD® logo to light up and/or the numbers 1 and 2 to appear. Those numbers allow you to select and listen to KAMU’s two noise-free content music streams at no cost:

  • HD-1: (KAMU 90.9-1): This is the higher-quality version of the 90.9 FM broadcast.
  • HD-2: (KAMU-Classical 90.9-2): This is the new classical music channel.
