WZBC Fundraiser

October 13, 2012

WZBC has a great-looking and easy-to-navigate newly-designed website. Check it out!

And, while you’re there, please consider contributing to the station’s biennial fundraiser. “Biennial” means it happens only once every two years. But listener support is essential, to help fund transmitter maintenance and repairs, provide on-line streaming and the audio archive, and facilitate every other aspect of our ability to bring you the very best music from Boston and beyond! And we have some excellent premiums there for you, too!

Ten songs, 22 minutes, perfection from start to finish. From Ex-Magicians.

“Obviously Girl”

“There From Here”

Members of Tristan da Cunha, one of my all-time favorite local bands, will be dropping by the WZBC studios tomorrow — Wednesday, May 4 — to discuss their farewell show this Saturday at PAs Lounge, their forthcoming lp, and assorted projects and accomplishments, past, present, future. ┬áPlease join us, 1-3pm, the old-fashioned way at 90.3fm or through the world-wide internet stream!
