Listener Comments and Reviews

Operas and arias...I was listening. Let me know if you need jazz, spoken-word, or comedy content. I would love to play the thousand plus recordings I have to all. Thanks, Brad

Hi Brad, Thank you for your interest in WJOP. We are planning to start training mid July. I didn't know about your comment until this week so I do apologize for not responding right away. Please email with your interest and I can reply when I have specific dates. We started with classical because that was our largest playlist, we are playing jazz now and some other short programs. Things do take time to evolve! We are aiming to offer programming that is not otherwise easily available in this Newburyport area. We do intend on have talk programs as well. WJOP is part of Newburyport's Community Media. We have not added a lot to website yet (again a lot to do, but we make progress daily!). Stop in if in the area - hours on website or send email. I know listeners were getting tired of all that classical...we will still have some when all is said and done, but not 24/7 :) Sarah Hayden - PortMedia -

Would like a playlist for 11/7/16 5:00 - 6:00AM. This is the time that I listen and there was an aria played around 5:55AM today that I heard you play in July also and would love to know what it is. Thanks

Was listening today on 2/17/17 at 12:43 pm and heard the most beautiful Latin sounding song with vocals. Could you please tell me what that was? I adore listening to your station - great morning of music!

New resident to Amesbury, and commute to work towards Ipswich 5 days a week. Found jopa just scrolling tired of the same ole same ole music I've been listening to for what seems like forever. My first day listening, you covered blues and jazz and a variety of music new to my palette. I'm hooked! It's local and has a sense of community driven news and reports. After my stressful day i look forward to the commute home. And make sure i stay close to Newburyport. Thank you!

I was listening to a beautiful piece with a cello, that ended at 18:16 hrs, on 2/7/18. Please tell me the name of this piece. Thank you for your dedication.

LOVE this station and the wonderful mix of music! Do you post your daily playlist? It would be great if you could so listeners can note certain recordings. Keep up the eclectic mix!

Can you post playlistssome of the medley's that' I"ve heard periodically while driving? .. THo I recognize the Beethoven and Brahms( I am a classical and jazz pianist and composer, if you'd like any of my albums), I would like to know some of the comtemporary jazz tracks. I alos am trying to find out when Joe was interviewed regarding the Fredrick Douglass speeches delivered at UU, as he told me this morning (when I first met him) that you played Tyrone Brown's chamber jazz album "A Sky with More Stars", which includes some of the same speeches. I had purchased 10 of these CDs through Dreambox Media in Philadelphia, one of which I subsequently gave to the UU administrator Kristen Feldenhaber. Tyrone Brown was my bassist for my 4 studio releases between 1997 and 2004. Thankyou

Love the station but am puzzled by classical repeats, especially in afternoon. Maybe time to freshen the classical selection? Nina fletcher

My go-to station. Fine mix and quality versions. A online playlist or better on FB would help a bit when something irresistible comes on. Thanks for your diligence and quality programming. Peace, Ed

Love your station. Wish you’d fix the technical problems that sound like a faulty CD player. Need you more than ever in this time of corona virus.
