Top 5 Reasons To Love Boston Fall Season:

5. Beautiful autumn foliage and leaf peeping.  Relatedly, a reason to say the words “leaf peeping”

4. Pumpkin flavored everything


2. Daylight Savings Time — gain an hour of sleep, woohoo!, and…

1. NEW WMBR SCHEDULE with toooons of new shows from our newest ‘MBR members!


That’s right, I am so excited to present the Fall 2014 WMBR Schedule which started today at 6AM.  We have twenty hours of programming every day of the week this season which includes twenty new shows!  Some other highlights of the new schedule:

  • Africa Kabisa (Sundays at 4PM) has returned as a weekly show
  • Si No Hay Material is now alternating with our old friend Musenomix on Fridays at 10PM
  • Our late-night Saturday hip-hop block is back starting at 10PM with Word is Born, followed by new shows Roll Chill and Scientific Method, and extending to 2AM with PJ Porter of Mellow Madness
  • We are all sad that Backwoods will not be returning for the Fall Season, but John Funke has promised us an equally great, name-to-be-determined, hour-long show Saturdays at 11AM.
  • And did I mention the plethora of new shows on air this season?!

Programming guides will be coming out shortly with more information on DJs and show content. Don’t forget, you can always email guide@wmbr.org with your full mailing address if you’d like a guide sent to your home.

Until next time… tune in to 88.1 FM or online at wmbr.org!


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.
