About Us

WDIF-LP is an independent, locally operated low power radio station licensed by the US Open Drum & Bugle Corp. We provide local businesses an affordable way to enhance their name recognition while supporting the Marion, OH community.

We are playing the blues and are currently the only 24/7 blues music radio station in the entire state of Ohio! From B.B. King to Willie Dixon, from front porch pickin’ on the Louisiana bayou to the big bands of Chicago, we play the absolute best blues music. We also give special consideration to local and Ohio-based blues artists. It’s the perfect blend of music to listen to anywhere—–home or office… and it’s all family-friendly!

We use proceeds from sponsorship to fund a local charitable initiative we call “The Blues Crew.” Through volunteer projects around Marion, local children can earn free musical instrument rentals so they can learn how to play music!

Wednesday and Thursday evenings, we feature a variety of programming that target local issues, seniors, youth, local sports, special music genres, and more. We have also made Sunday mornings available for Marion-area church sermons.


We invite anyone who has an idea for a program that will reflect the views and needs of the Marion area to contact us.  We’ll listen and try our best to bring that dream to reality!


Community Radio for Marion, Ohio is being provided through a Federal Communications license granted to the US Open Commission, a 501C3 organization.  The station broadcasts at 97.5 FM, and covers Marion County.
