The Basics. WBRS is the non-commercial student radio station licensed to Brandeis University in Waltham Massachusetts. We broadcast 24/7/365 serving Brandeis University, Waltham and the
surrounding communities. Our rich history is available on Wikipedia.
The Tech Stuff.
WBRS broadcasts with an ERP (effective radiated power) of 25 watts at an elevation of 46 meters HAAT (height above average terrain). Our facilities are located on the Brandeis campus with studios in the Shapiro Campus Center and transmitter on top of the Rabb Graduate Center. WBRS is licensed by the FCC as a Class D or secondary signal.
WBRS is staffed by students as well as volunteers from the community. There are no paid positions. The entire managing executive board (E-Board) is made up of student volunteers. Anyone interested in getting involved or becoming a DJ is encouraged to contact the personnel director.
The programming at WBRS is diverse. We have shows playing just about every genre of music as well as sports and talk. Our motto is "Something For Everyone" and we live up to that declaration. We encourage all artists, labels, and radio services to contribute material for airplay. See our contact page for details.
WBRS welcomes bands and performance artists to play live on our airwaves. Each week on The Joint and WBRS Coffeehouse we have the best in local (and not-so-local) artists live on the air. Coffeehouse primarily focuses on acoustic performances, whereas The Joint welcomes regular bands, non-regular bands, solo artists, performance artists...any artist that makes noise is welcome! We have a complete recording setup in the Brandeis Multi-Purpose Room (see webcam) and all performances are recorded to Audio CD. We've had a wide variety of folks visit us at WBRS, including The Allstonians, Rich Mackin (Corporate Defense Consumer Poet), Lisa Loeb, Moxy Fruvous, Liz Nickrenz, Juniper's Daughter, Heidi and Five O'Clock Shadow.
