VESTAL, NY (WSKG) – Online radio offers listeners limitless choices, but it can be a difficult path to navigate.   So much of it depends on the maker of your smart phone and your smart speaker.  Another variable is your online subscriptions.  And there can be huge differences between apps meant to perform the same functions.

So, WSKG Radio has created a convenient starting point for folks seeking their favorite public radio programs.  By the way, these programs are free of subscriptions, fees and commercials.

All our digital content can be found at YourPublicRadio.ORG.  Go there and with a click or two, you can access podcasts created by the WSKG newsroom.  Among the podcasts are current newscasts, in-depth stories, and arts interviews.

WSKG’s music programs are also podcasts.  At YourPublicRadio.ORG, you’ll find the latest episodes of Free Range Folk, The Hour of Now, By Special Invitation and Soundscape.

Our newest digital features are music streams from the WSKG Music Library.  While we plan to expand the list, currently you can find Holiday A2Z, Nocturne A2ZBach-analia A2Z, Pops A2Z, Concerts A2Z, Beethoven A2Z, Choral A2Z and New World A2Z.  Plus, there are our WSKG radio and WSKG Classical streams. Our latest additions are Your Classical A2Z ands New Standards from WNYC.

From YourPublicRadio.ORG, you can explore our program offerings on other platforms, such as the WSKG app, the NPR ONE app, TuneIn, iHeart, the WSKG ALEXA skill, and other smart speakers. They include the smart speakers now built into the dashboards of new cars.

To activate the WSKG music skills, go to your ALEXA app and search for WSKG.  Click on each A2Z skill and click “LAUNCH.”  Then ask ALEXA to “open” that stream. To donate, say “Alexa, I want to make a donation to WSKG.”

You can also hear WSKG’s podcasts and radio streams on your GOOGLE Nest. For example, you can also say:
