Throughout 2024, 88.9 WERS, Boston’s Uncommon Radio, is celebrating our 75th birthday!
Broadcasting from Emerson College, we’re an independent, professionally managed, and student staffed public radio station, the first non-commercial radio station in New England, in operation since November 1949.
Scroll down to the bottom to take a look at some photos that depict WERS from throughout the years!
Our year-long celebration will feature concerts and events, a special 75th birthday vinyl compilation of Studio 88.9 sessions, deep-dives into the archives, commemorative merch and more!
It’s our Birthday, but you’re getting the gifts!
