WEB STREAMS ARE DOWN — FM broadcasting OK.

Due to power outages in Princeton and the surrounding areas, our main signal router has crashed, preventing us from splitting our output between the Webstream and FM.  We are working on the problem, and in the meantime we will be broadcasting via FM ONLY at our usual frequency, 103.3.

Car radios and FM-tuners will still work fine, but internet sources of WPRB are out until further notice.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will get the stream back up as soon as we can.

 

Long live independent radio.

WPRB Charts 2/28/16: Vinyl Edition!


Week 02/28/2016 

This past week DJs could only play shellac and vinyl; charts are reflecting trends accordingly. I wrote a poem but it was bad and weirdly sexual i.e. phallic needles, yonic grooves, the consummation of music etc.
