The 48th annual Boston Pride Parade is happening on Saturday June 9th 2018. In recognition of this, WMBR will be celebrating Pride Week from June 4th-10th! We’ll be featuring content curated by individual DJs, focused on LGBTQIA+ lives, voices, history and discussion.

Here are some resources created for/by the LGBTQIA+ community at MIT (and some related to the wider Boston/Cambridge area):

We hope that you’ll tune in for this year’s Pride Week on WMBR. Listen from 6/4-6/10 on 88.1FM or wmbr.org!

We’re starting off our summer season show features with Africa Kabisa, hosted by Julia Mongo and Muna Kangsen! Africa Kabisa means “Africa Absolutely” and first aired at WMBR in 1992, featuring classic and contemporary African and Afro-Caribbean music alongside interviews and discussion on African-related topics.

You can listen to Africa Kabisa on Sundays from 4-6pm, except for the last Sunday of each month (when Brutus hosts Worldbeat). This is a part of Sunday’s “world music block”, featuring programs that draw upon music and other content from across the world.

This week’s featured show is Back to Normal: an audio adventure starring a hivemind boy band, a monocle-clad psychic, some sentient lightning, and the world’s greatest mini-golf baron! Back to Normal is hosted by Loren (Storyteller), Daniel (Clyde Puttersley), Sarah (Havoc! at the [full name pending]), Andrea (Madame Three-Eyes Four-Sight) and Zach (Lord Lightning).

Back to Normal is a radio show in which five nerds play a tabletop RPG about mad science and the problems and solutions it causes. The game involves a lot of rule-checking and dice-rolling, but we cut most of that out and leave you with the story of the intertwined lives of four eccentric characters in Normal, IL as the mundane midwestern town becomes a hotspot of mad science.

You can tune in to Back to Normal every Wednesday at 6pm (up until our Spring 2018 season ends)! You can also listen to the Back to Normal Archives on their website to catch up on the story (and here’s a helpful glossary of RPG-specific terms used in Back to Normal).
