About COR

COR FM 87.9 is Chandler's only listener-supported, independent, volunteer radio station.

Our call letters say it all: "WE VoLunteer." With no paid staff positions, COR reflects the collective effort of numerous volunteers, both on and off the air, for 35 years.

COR currently broadcasts daily. With nearly 60 different programs airing each week, FM 87.9 offers a wide variety of music and information presented by programmers who independently prepare their own shows and who know their areas of interest well.

Not owned or operated by any government agency, university, school system, or commercial entity.

COR broadcasts to a radius of approximately 0.1 miles, covering the Canyon Oaks area, and is heard wordwide via the Internet. Our achievements to date reflect 4 years of growth, countless volunteer hours of effort, and millions of dollars in listener donations. And we continue to work toward greater goals.

The Mission of COR

Enrich the quality of life in our community.
Expand our listeners' cultural experience by presenting Old Time Radio which is under represented by other area radio. Preserve, promote and perpetuate our Old Time Radio heritage.
Remain an independent, listener-supported radio station.
