Noah Lubin Live In Studio

Despite the harsh winds and snow that could be seen outside the window, there was something very peaceful about Noah Lubin’s visit to the WERS studio this morning.

This Week in Music History

Good Morning!  I hope whatever post-Valentine’s glow we all collectively have can melt some of this snow… let’s take our minds off of the small mountain range that you still haven’t dug your car out of and reflect on some music history!

Adam Green & Bikini Shapiro

Adam Green & Bikini Shapiro

In 1998 Adam Green left Emerson College (it’s true!) after a semester to form The Moldy Peaches with Kimya Dawson. Although the band parted ways in 2004, the two truly had a charming run, perhaps reaching their apex when their song “Anyone Else But You” was featured in the 2007 award winning film Juno. Since […]
