For this week’s featured show interview, we spoke to Max: the eloquent, enigmatic, ethereal host of Late Night Jazz. Max also happens to be the head curator for our upcoming Ampersand concert in May and a co-host of Late Night Space Jazz with Crood Boi and Lorinda.

You can hear Late Night Jazz / Late Night Space Jazz on Thursday nights at 11pm!

Here’s a featured show interview with Nancy, one of the hosts of King Ghidorah! Today’s featured show interview is bittersweet as it marks the end of Nancy’s 25 years at WMBR. Nancy is doing her last radio show at WMBR 2-4pm tomorrow 4/14 before she moves to the sunny shores of Las Vegas Nevada. We’ll be missing her tons, so be sure to tune in!

On the 10th of April in 1961, a tiny radio station with call letters WTBS signed on the air for the first time from the campus of MIT, with a 10-watt FM signal at 88.1 MHz. 57 years later, that station is now called WMBR, broadcasting with a 720-watt signal and entirely supported by volunteers and listeners.

We’re incredibly grateful to have had the support of so many wonderful people throughout all these years. Thanks for sticking around and supporting our college radio shenanigans! This post details a bit of WMBR history for anyone interested in reading about WMBR’s humble beginnings.
