WBFO The Bridge: New AAA Music Service

WBFO The Bridge_logo

Buffalo Toronto Public Media has launched a new music service, WBFO The Bridge, with a Triple-A (Adult Album Alternative) format.

The service is available on WBFO 88.7 HD2 and streaming through the WBFO The Bridge app, at wbfo.org/TheBridge, and also via smart speakers, and TuneIn.

“We have great radio stations in Buffalo and Toronto but we were missing a non-commercial Triple-A station,” Tom Calderone, president and CEO of Buffalo Toronto Public Media said.

“I knew the talented staff here would be able to get this idea off the ground quickly, and they have! We’re now playing the top 1,132 of the best New Wave-Post Modern-Classic-Old School-Indie-Alternative songs of all time. Basically, it’s college radio for adults.”

WBFO The Bridge plays music from Beck, Death Cab for Cutie, Mumford & Sons, The Cure, Nirvana, Panic! At the Disco, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Radiohead, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs – a wide variety.

And in the coming months, WBFO The Bridge will add music from local bands in Western New York and Southern Ontario, launch new programming, add live music, and create music storytelling formats through video, podcasting, and artist collaborations.
