Here at EC Radio, we encourage, or rather implore all of our faithful listeners to seek out local musicians. Local music keeps a community connected in some way, and it keeps a very important art alive in every nook and cranny of our cities and towns.
Without musicians creating, composing, and performing just because of how much they truly love doing so, a powerful form of sharing emotion and thought might dissipate into nothing but a mere scramble for money and the biggest hits.
If you don’t believe me, here’s and example of what local musicians can do when they finally get noticed:
Keep on listening, friends.
Justin Vernon of Bon Iver decided to go ahead and make everyone weep uncontrollably by playing a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”
This beauty stems just from one human being playing a piano and singing his heart out.
This is what music is all about.
Do you like Jazz?
Do you like Hip-Hop?
¿Por qué no las dos?
Toronto-native band BADBADNOTGOOD would like to bridge the gap between the two contrasting genres for you. This three piece group tours the northeast regularly and, in fact, they’re coming to Boston on December 3rd!
But really, check these guys out. There’s a lot of talent just waiting to be heard here.
Here’s just a taste… a cover of Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights”
Enjoy the tunes, and tune in to EC Radio for more great music!
Alright, faithful listeners, the time has come! The EC Radio season has finally begun!
Thanks so much for bearing with us.
We will start broadcasting our shows this Wednesday, October 22nd. The schedule has been updated to the latest show listings and times (no, really, go see for yourself!). You can view the schedule by clicking the – well -“Schedule” tab on the top of this website. The first show of the day will be at 5pm, hosted by Miranda McLean!
We’re extremely excited to kick off this lineup of shows, and you’ll certainly be hearing from us very soon.
All the best,
The EC Radio Team
It’s been a long wait for fans of EC Radio, but alas, we have finally returned and are better than ever. We’re having our first General Members meeting on Wednesday October 8th in Emmanuel’s Admin building, room 432 at 8:00 pm. There, we’ll be accepting submissions for show slots as well as any positions for help that people can possibly give. We have our executive board, but we still need a good amount of help with getting this up and running as efficiently as it used to be. So, we are calling all music lovers, far and wide. Come to EC Radio if you love spreading the joys of music, if you love entertainment and capturing audiences’ attention, and especially if you love the idea of a student-run, fully functional radio station that is broadcasted to the world. We’re waiting for YOUR voice. YOUR voice can be spread globally, can be listened to anywhere. I only ask one thing: How is that not the coolest thing ever?
I short, we would love to see you there.

Hello, faithful listeners. In case you didn’t know, next week is spring break here at Emmanuel College, so regular broadcasting will be temporarily suspended from March 9 until March 18. If you start to miss our mix of intoxicating indie sound, you have our permission to listen in to other, worthy college stations in the meantime. Don’t stray too long, though. We want you back!
Here are two of our local and very much appreciated fellow collegiate broadcasters: MIT’s awesome WMBR, 88.1 on the dial or http://wmbr.mit.edu/ or our other favorite, WBZC, 90.3 on the dial or http://wzbc.org/
But remember, we’re here until Friday! Listen in for Brittany Williams today at 3 and Ice of Boston at 7pm! (Take a look at their FaceBook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ice-of-Boston/141665182597469?sid=0.2874276706615234)
