WCAL drops 'Car Talk,' 'Whad'ya Know'

NORTHFIELD -- A new slogan and a greater emphasis on classical music programming were unveiled last week by WCAL radio in Northfield.

The station's new moniker is "Classical 89.3 -- Music and Ideas." Among the new programs are "Evening Song," an hour of choral music at 9 p.m. nightly, "Backstage Pass," an update on the Twin Cities arts scene at 6 p.m. Thursdays and noon Saturdays, and "Sunday Baroque," from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Sundays.

The station is dropping the NPR programs "Car Talk" and "Whad'ya Know?"

WCAL programming is heard in the Rochester area at 88.7 FM.
