We're bruised, but we're back! Though still isolated from our home base in Princeton, WPRB is now airing shows created by quarantined DJs from their own makeshift home studios. The windup to 24/7 freeform programming will increase each week as more DJs transform toasters, bicycle pumps, and old NES Gameboys into turntables, CD players, and microphones. Watch this space or follow us on Facebook to catch a preview of each day's slate of experimental home broadcasters.
Today's Schedule (May 26th)
9 AM: "Scratchy Vinyl" with Tim K
11 AM: "The Right to Remain Silent" with Dante
1 PM: "The Lights Are Out but Everyone's Home" with Deirdre Dionysiac
4 PM: "This is Not a Drill" with Tommy
6 PM: "The UnCertain Hour" with Violet
9 PM: "Radio Activity" with Abbie From Mars || SPECIAL: Krafetwerk Tribute for Florian Schneider (encore presentation)
Again, we expect freeform programming to expand for longer stretches of the broadcast day very soon!
For the time being, playlists will be posted on our blog
, where you can also catch an important update
from WPRB's fearless Station Manager Owen Engel and Program Director Hanna Szabo. Thank you for sticking with us through these crazy times -- stay home and stay safe, but now with the added companionship of your pals at WPRB.
The Coronavirus crisis has forced WPRB to cancel its annual Spring Membership Drive, which unfortunately means lean times ahead for independent radio in Princeton. While there's no immediate danger of WPRB running out of money (thanks largely to our existing army of monthly donors), our routine expenses go on despite our inability to tempt you with t-shirts, bumperstickers, and commemorative statues of Wilbo. As such, please consider a swag-less donation to help WPRB plow ahead during the Covid-19 crisis. You can make a one-time donation by clicking here
, or throw down with a monthly donation right over here
. All contributions are appreciated, but monthly donations create a regular influx of cash, which will help make our home broadcasting experiment more robust (while also preparing us for whatever apocalyptic crap 2020 decides to throw at us next.) Now, more than ever, WPRB strives to be a radio-supported independent community, and every pledge counts. Thank you for sticking with us through these crazy times!
