WVAU is American University's student radio station. We broadcast online 24/7 from the Mary Graydon Center in Washington, D.C.
With a staff of over 120 student DJs, WVAU offers unique musical programming and a perspective that you won't find anywhere else. Outside of the studio, WVAU brings in local and touring artists every semester for interviews, in-studio performances, and our Capital Punishment free concert series. We also host monthly open mic nights to showcase AU's talented students and faculty. All of our events are free and open to the public.
WVAU focuses on showcasing independent music that you won't hear on your traditional Top 40 station. Our live programming covers the best in indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, experimental, jazz, folk, world music, and more. Our eclectic schedule doesn't limit students to genre-specific shows, which sets WVAU apart from traditional college radio stations and gives our DJs the freedom to play whatever music they want.
WVAU sends out applications for radio shows at the beginning of each semester, and all students and faculty are welcome to apply for a show. Want to get involved sooner?
