WFAE is the flagship National Public Radio station in Charlotte, North Carolina broadcasting at 90.7 MHz on the FM dial. The station went on the ... See more air on June 29, 1981 as a service of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, taking over from a student-run carrier current station that had begun operation in the mid 1970s. It operated from the basement of the Cone University Center. In addition to NPR programs, it aired jazz during the day and classical music at night[citation needed]. Later, jazz was moved to night[2]. The station grew rapidly, and within five years moved to much larger studios in the One University Place building near the UNCC campus where it still is today. In February 1986, WFAE began airing new age music on a Sunday evening show emphasizing contemporary jazz, featuring such artists as George Winston and Kitaro[3]. The show was called "New Age Sunday" at first, but the station dropped that name to distance itself from the new age spiritual movement[4].
