Poise fingers and open up those ears

Are you ready for the first all-arts, all-the-time radio station? If so, prepare to sit down at your computer and go to www.wps1.org. Operated by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York and sponsored by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's media corporation, Bloomberg L.P., WPS1 will go live April 19 with nonstop music and arts talk.

The Internet station will offer a mix of contemporary programs, hosted by writers, artists and musicians, and historical material from the Museum of Modern Art's audio archive. The lineup is to include "The Yay/Nay Show" with Linda Yablonsky and Carey Lovelace, a critical overview of current art, film, music, theater and books; "On the Mark" with Mark Fletcher, a discussion of the contemporary art market; "The Real Estate Show" with Heather Cohane, advice for artists and organizations seeking living and working space; and "Writers' Choice," author interviews conducted by rotating guest hosts.
