WERA Winter Fund Drive

The WERA Winter Fund LOVE drive began yesterday, December 4, 2017. However due to some circumstances outside of our control the first hour of my show last night didn't air. While we're busy preparing for next week's best of 2017 show we aired one of our favorite programs (number 25) with a few slight modifications specifically around the fund drive. So I thought I'd share this with the zero of you that care... this was a few minutes of what WERA and radio still sucks have meant to me. Please head over to WERA.fm and click to make a donation to the station. ...

Fall notes…

Hey everybody. we hope you're having a great early fall and are getting ready for the rapidly approaching holiday season. As most of you know we've had our hands full with our new daughter, but we have a lot of great stuff coming up for you before the new year that we wanted to briefly talk about. So, pardon the temporary increase in rebroadcasts of shows you probably haven't heard before. And, if you missed any of them, we had some pretty awesome themed shows recently that I think you'd enjoy. For example: Episode 62 was a show made entirely for my new daughter, with some of my favorite songs and bands and tracks I thought she'll really like some day. Episode 64 featured an entire hour of a tribute to the late, great, Tom Petty. Episode 65 was all punk, pop punk, and a sprinkling of something approaching hardcore, which we hadn't really played much of on our program. All of...

Month Long Hiatus

While my wife and I welcome our first child into the world we'll be doing some re-broadcasts on WERA for the next month. Enjoy encore broadcasts the next few Monday nights at 10pm over on 96.7fm or browse the ARCHIVE right here on this very site and catch up with shows you missed. We pour our hearts into ALMOST every one of them. We'll let you see if you can guess which ones we phoned in. (it's less than you might think!). Thanks, as always, for listening. Rock on. .jeff. ...

Now Live in Studio….

Good news! Starting monday, april 3rd, all (read: most) future shows will be done fully live, from WERA's beautiful radio studios. No more pre-recorded programs. The sad news is that we're giving up our Friday night/saturday morning re-broadcasts due to production limitations, and the on demand versions may not appear until Wednesdays now, but that's okay. We're really excited to be live every week bringing you the latest new (and classic) indie rock tunes. It's likely to take us a few weeks to get our feet beneath us, so please pardon our rust as we adjust to this change. Pre-production of the show will change. how we fill the two hours will change. new features/spots, call in requests???, and other fun things we have in store will slowly be rolled out. What won't change is the awesome music we feature week in and week out. Now that we're fully live, what will happen? Tune...
