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.
WMBR is located in the basement of the Walker Memorial
building at 142 Memorial Drive (next to the East Campus Tennis courts
by the intersection with Ames Street). 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).
