WERS IS PROUD TO PRESENT OUR 4TH ANNUAL 617 DAY!

Join 'ERS on Friday, June 17th for 617 Day, our annual celebration of local music, local business, and local radio.

Why 617? It's been our area code in Boston since 1947, two years before 88.9 signed on!

This year, we're capping the day with a concert at Brighton Music Hall starring some of our favorite bands from all around Boston: Coral Moons, The Q-Tip Bandits, and Mint Green!

Celebrate 617 Day at Brighton Music Hall

Tickets to our 617 Day Concert are available here. We will also be broadcasting the show live on 88.9 starting at 8pm Friday night!
