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!

Our second fundraising featured show interview is with the team behind Pipeline!Jeff Breeze and Mike Reed! Pipeline! is WMBR’s local, live music show, featuring new releases from all over New England and a live band nearly every week. You can tune in to Pipeline! every Tuesday from 8-10pm, including tonight.

It’s the second-to-last day of our fundraising week, and also happens to be Mike’s last WMBR fundraiser before he moves out of town! Our station is entirely volunteer-run, which includes all the work that goes into booking, engineering and producing live music in our studios for the airwaves. You can support our fundraiser on our website or by calling 617-253-8810.
