WMBR celebrates 50 years on the air
Barry Chin/Globe Staff
MIT's 50-year-old radio station, WMBR (88.1), now broadcasts at 720 watts, rather than its paltry original 10 watts of power. But its menu of unwaveringly eclectic programming The Late Risers Club, Breakfast of Champions, Lost & Found, James Dean Death Car Experience, Pipeline! (the long-standing local music program), and scores of others continues unabated.
Take a look back at its five decades on the air.
