WDNA 88.9FM: The Heartbeat of Miami’s Jazz Scene


Since 1980, WDNA 88.9FM has been the epicenter of “serious jazz” in South Florida, offering an unparalleled variety of music, from bebop to fusion to Latin jazz. Unlike other stations dominated by repetitive pop hits and corporate playlists, WDNA enriches our community with diverse sounds and insightful programming. This public radio station is a vital cultural resource, especially in a landscape overshadowed by Clear Channel’s commercial dominance.

Since 1980, WDNA has been airing “serious jazz” for South Florida audiences at 88.9 FM on the radio dial. You no longer have to be within the proximity of their antenna to appreciate the width and breadth of their programming, because they stream worldwide on their website now, wdna.org. They spin blues records, world music, and their bread and butter, all that jazz — from bebop to fusion to Latin. The public radio station provides a welcome relief to local airwaves dominated by Clear Channel crap and pop songs stuck on repeat. WDNA does so much for this city. It opens minds to a diversity of sounds, keeps us updated on the local jazz scene, and lets us know about touring artists that make it to our neck of the woods.

Now, more than ever, WDNA and similar organizations need community support to continue their essential work. Supporting WDNA means preserving a unique cultural treasure that educates, entertains, and connects us to the vibrant world of jazz.
