From All Classical 89.9,
All Classical FM is Portland, Oregon’s classical radio station. Established in 1983, All Classical’s mission is to advance knowledge of and appreciation for classical music; to build and sustain culturally vibrant local and global communities around this art form; to reflect the spirit of the Pacific Northwest; and to foster integrity, quality, and innovation in all that we do.
The stations of All Classical rebroadcast the All Classical signal from Portland.
Classical music for the Hood River area became a reality with the launch of KQHR 90.1FM in November 2001.
All Classical has added its newest permanent station this Halloween, KQDL 88.1 The Dalles. In May 2008, a long-time dream to have a classical station at the Oregon Coast became reality when KQOC 88.1 FM went on the air from Cape Foulweather. Our strongest signal in Oregon, this station reaches Tillamook and Cannon Beach to the north and Yachats to the south.
As non-commercial public radio stations, KQAC, KQHR, KQDL and KQOC rely on listener contributions, which provide over 60% of our budget. We also receive financial support from local businesses and arts organizations that underwrite our programming through on-air sponsorships. Additionally, a small portion of our annual budget comes from various foundation grants and from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Your contribution is held by All Classical Public Media, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving classical music radio and radio broadcast education in Portland. Tax-ID # 93-1042868.
