Citizen Studios

An Analog Recording Studio

A classic space for timeless sounds, Citizen Studios is the modern analog rebirth of the historic WWNC radio station studios. The newly renovated space now consists of a large control room and a communal multipurpose room for recording, rehearsing and events.

The studio is currently only available for recording artists, engineers, producers and private events. Not open to the public. For studio inquiries, please email us at


Originally the live performance room for radio broadcasts, Studio A has been recently restored as a modern analog mixing and tracking room. It features a 16-channel Rupert Neve Designs 5088 console, and an impressive collection of vintage and analog outboard gear and microphones.

Here is a sample of some recent projects recorded and mixed here.

Studio B is Citizen Studios’ large, multi-purpose space. It features 17′ tall ceilings, an inviting mid-century lounge, and is ideal for tracking, remote broadcasts, video shoots/online performances, podcasts, and catered private events.


Original to the building’s design and construction in 1939, the WWNC radio station was recognized as one of the most state-of-the art radio stations in the country … second only to RCA Studios in New York City.

Local, regional and nationally recognized musicians graced the station’s AM airwaves, performing live from Studio A.

Citizen Studios aims to celebrate this rich history through the ongoing development of new music projects, many of which will be pressed into great sounding vinyl records right here onsite. Learn more station history here >
