As a volunteer college radio station, our schedule tends to feature a whole host of eclectic shows with lots of variety each season. However, we do have a few staple shows/themes that have been around for years, and today, we’re featuring a DJ that has helped bring soul to WMBR’s airwaves for many years. Here’s a featured show interview with Captain Al, host of Summer/Fall/Winter Soulstice and former host of R&B Jukebox!

Fall/Winter Soulstice, Capt. Al’s current show, airs every Sunday from 6-8pm and is also hosted by Fred Allen and any other WMBR DJ who wants to try their hand at playing soul.

Captain Al!

As our Spring 2019 Season ended, we were sad to take a final drive down the Lost Highway as Doug decided to retire the show. However, we’re also excited to have new routes and paths to explore with a show called FM Road, hosted by Paige and Zach! FM Road takes you through roots, “Americana,” country, bluegrass, and adjacent twang – just a little bit further down the Lost Highway.

Here’s a featured show interview to help you get to know Paige and Zach! You can hear them on the air every Saturday from 8-10am. Paige and Zach also compile the WMBR Roots Report! If you’d like occasional email updates on concerts in related genres, you can subscribe to the mailing list using this link.

The #HomelessnessMarathon is a unique radio program that gives homeless people and their allies a chance to speak with the nation about their experiences. This year’s broadcast will originate from WMBR’s studios in Cambridge, MA on July 24th 2019. We’ve broadcasted the Marathon for many years and are thrilled to be able to host and help produce the event this year!

For this featured show interview, we talked to two of the people helping to make this year’s Marathon happen: Jeremy, the founder of the Homelessness Radio Marathon, and Linda, WMBR News Director and the main coordinator of this year’s Marathon from WMBR’s side of things. We hope that you’ll tune in from 10 a.m. to midnight on July 24th!

Our featured show interviews return: here’s a chat with David & Amy, co-hosts of Treaty of Tordesillas! Their show focuses on Latin music, centred around Spanish and Portuguese lyrics but ranging far and wide across different genres and cultures.

You can hear Treaty of Tordesillas on the air every other Sunday at 2pm, including this week (2/24). Tune in at wmbr.org or 88.1FM!
