Celebrating 35 Years of RadioLive

From the heart of Florida’s Great Northwest, it’s RADIOLIVE!

The brainchild of WUWF Executive Director, Pat Crawford, RadioLive made its debut in September 1988 as part of the inaugural celebration of UWF’s third president, Dr. Morris Marx.

The program was designed to showcase the abundant regional talent in WUWF’s listening area along with an occasional touring guest artist. Over the years, the focus shifted to that of bringing a unique and eclectic mix of musical artists from around the country to share with our community. As the reputation of the show grew, so did the caliber of artists seeking to perform on RadioLive.

Today, RadioLive brings some of the best singer/songwriters in the country to Pensacola.

RadioLive is both an event and a program. The monthly show is broadcast live the first Thursday of each month, before an audience of 200+ at the Museum of Commerce in Historic Pensacola Village.

September 2023 marks RadioLive’s 35th Anniversary. Support WUWF's RadioLive.
