Did you know that WBGO is Newark Public Radio? It's not just the station's corporate name, it is part of everything we do. We are proud to be the community radio station for New Jersey's largest city.
This month, WBGO and other Newark arts organizations are teaming up to showcase the amazing cultural richness that exists in Newark. This effort, spearheaded by the Newark Convention & Visitors Bureau is called Endless Arts October.
WBGO activities during Endless Arts October include our partnership with the TD James Moody Democracy of Jazz Festival, The WBGO Kids Jazz Concert Series, Too Heavy for Words, a gallery exhibit at the station featuring works by four New Jersey photographers, which will be part of Newark Art's Open Doors celebration, and of course, our ongoing, award-winning jazz and news programming.
Take a look at the Endless Arts October guide below and start planning your visit to WBGO's hometown!

WBGO is able to bring listeners unique performances like the one last night thanks in large part to the support of members.
We are in the midst of our Fall fund raiser, and today (September 20), every member contribution goes further. Anyone who pledges today has the power to help WBGO DOUBLE the impact, thanks to the great folks who have donated to the WBGO Challenge Fund.
On Match Day your pledge is matched dollar for dollar.
If you appreciate the content that only WBGO can bring you, please support the station today. This is the only Match Day of our fall fund drive.

WBGO has been mailing out the Upbeat program guide for decades. We recently discovered some gems from the early years and thought we would share a few of those covers here.
WBGO has been at the vanguard of technology with online streaming of our programs, HD, HD2 (the jazz bee), mobile apps and more. In an effort to keep Upbeat in step with all these forward thinking efforts, we have created a digital version of our familiar program guide, which you can view online, magazine style with embedded links right to further information on our website. Take a test drive of this new service below and let us know what you think.
