Information about WMBR
WMBR is a federally licensed FM radio station, operating at 88.1 MHz
from the campus of MIT. Our signal can be heard in most of eastern
Massachusetts at 88.1 FM, 365 days a year, 20-24 hours per day. WMBR
is a noncommercial, all volunteer radio station. None of its members
are paid for its efforts. The majority of WMBR's funding comes from
listener donations with additional support from MIT.
WMBR's unique and innovative programming ranges from hip-hop to
classical, punk rock to jazz, blues to celtic fiddle tunes. We offer
the opportunity for MIT students and community members to learn about
music, radio engineering, audio production techniques, electrical
engineering, acoustics, news reporting and how to manage a small business.
The offices and studios of WMBR are located in the basement of the Walker Memorial Building at
Memorial Drive (next to the Tennis Courts at the intersection
of Ames St. and Memorial Dr.).
Our program guide is
available online, and on the front door
of our studios (MIT Room 50-030). It changes within the first few
weeks of each MIT semester (Fall, Spring, Summer).
