KBACH Simulcast

Enjoy classical music 24/7, including locally-produced recordings from the Classical Arizona PBS team.

In addition to our four television channels, Arizona PBS also airs a simulcast of KBACH, the only radio station in Phoenix that plays classical music 24/7, on digital TV channel 8.5.

Known as Classical Arizona PBS, our simulcast airs 24/7 in Dolby Digital Surround. We take special care in presenting stereo programming from KBAQ in surround sound while maintaining the integrity of the music.

Additionally, select Arizona PBS audio productions are presented in full-discrete surround sound. Arizona PBS’ audio production team, Central Sound, produces programs such as Arizona Encore as part of our partnership with KBACH.

Classical Arizona PBS is primarily available for those with an antenna, as it is not carried by most cable/satellite subscription services.
