Listen to WHYY on Your iPhone™

Listen to WHYY-FM on your iPhone and iPod Touch with the Public Radio Player iPhone application. WHYY-FM and many other public radio stations are all available to stream on your iPhone or iPod Touch when you install the free Public Radio Player application from the iTunes App Store.

Where it works:
The Public Radio Tuner application works on all iPhones and iPod Touches. However, some station streams with a high bitrate (128k or higher) will perform best when using a wifi or 3G connection. Streams that are 64k or lower will play with a wifi, 3G, or EDGE network connection.
