Today is College Radio Day, a day to celebrate college radio stations across the world for being “one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming.”

As a participating station, we at WMBR have decided to bring you a full day (well, a full 20 hour day) of radio programming featuring a large variety of unsigned, independent, and local artists.

So really, we’re doing the same thing we always do.

Fred Fest is an annual concert featuring New England rock acts, thrown together by WMBR and the students of the East Campus dorm, with support by MIT’s Large Event Fund. Over 200 people came out to see this year’s acts, Sarah Borrello, Dressed for the Occasion, and Nemes.

Here’s some photos from this year’s event, courtesy of Billy De Maio, host of Madame Resistance on Mondays at 11PM.

That’s all I’ve got for now. More to come in the upcoming weeks as we get settled in and start our new programming season (September 30th)!
