WERS is proud to present our second annual 617 Day!

Having been an active member of the Boston community for 70 years, WERS has always been committed to playing great music, and staying live and local, no matter what. We're at our best when we amplify those who bring peace and joy to our world, and play songs that give strength during hardship.  With this in mind, we'd like to announce our second annual 617 Day, a celebration of local music, local business, and local radio, taking place Wednesday, June 17. We hope you will join in on this day of unity through art.

What is 617 Day?
