Inside LMW: On-Air

Inside LMW: On-Air

Tuesday afternoon in late March: just another day of Emerson classes and work? Think again. Here in the WERS air studio there are three hosts instead of the usual one. Katie is at the board, Kathryn and Jamie at the guest seats. All three are taking their turn at pitching on the air for Live […]

Jay Psaros

Jay Psaros

Jay Psaros is joining a fast growing cult of artists who transcend expectations of their medium and big label standards for a life of true musicianship. 2012 promises the release of his third album, an acoustic EP AND a book Jay’s been working on chronicling his life on the road as an independent artist. Perhaps […]

Antje Duvekot

Antje Duvekot

So I’m sitting here trying to determine what exactly it is I’m eating this afternoon (some sort of Jamaican chicken dish…I’m pretty sure). WERS Live Music Week pretty much runs single-handedly on coffee and mystery dishes. I notice Antje Duvekot’s guitar case chillen next to me in the WERS lobby before she gets ready for […]

Inside LMW: News Department

Inside LMW: News Department

During Live Music Week we often see a lot of behind the scenes footage of the web staff and live mix teams, but it’s not very often that we hear how LMW affects the award winning news department. I am here with Maggie Smolka, Friday Morning News Producer, lets see how LMW impacts her and […]

Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton is based in Philly, grew up in Virginia, started her first band while living in Oregon, and based her latest album on her experiences from frequent visits in New Orleans, the city that stole her affection. Currently, touring all over the US, and today she stopped by for Live Music Week to share […]

Will Dailey

Will Dailey

Originally a singer-songwriter, WIll Dailey has grown into a full-time rocker since his 2011 release Will Dailey & The Rivals. The full band alongside Will on this record has naturally allowed room for a more evolved and dynamic sound. Even though so much of Will’s recent focus has been on creating a fuller sound, he […]

Dan Blakeslee

Dan Blakeslee

New England native Dan Blakeslee is one of our favorite local singer-songwriters and a WERS regular. One WERS staffer, waiting for his performance, told me: “I love Dan Blakeslee, I see him out and about in Boston sometimes and he’s just great. He’s one of those real-deal guys who’s really doing it for the love […]

Inside Live Music Week: Sara Morgan, Marketing Dir.

Inside Live Music Week: Sara Morgan, Marketing Dir.

Even though WERS is a college-run radio station, we still get a little help from non-students such as Marketing Director Sara Morgan. After joining the station staff in July of 2011, Morgan began working on new ways to get our music news out apart from the airwaves. She helped WERS complete a successful Live Music […]

Chairlift

Chairlift

Chairlift: They began as a trio, and then they turned into a duo, but somehow, five of them appeared at WERS for their on-air performance for Live Music Week. Patrick Wimberly and Caroline Polachek– along with their three other troubadours– have another month or so of tour ahead of them, but for this last weekend […]

Po Boyz

Po Boyz

Po’ Boyz describe their sound as a “soulful gumbo of sounds, fearless souls and spirits.” While they’ve found a strong local following in Boston and have a weekly residency at the Middle East in Cambridge, their sound is deeply rooted in the South, particularly New Orleans, with a touch of 1970′s jam-band riffs. The band’s […]
