Music Department

The Music Department is WBRS’s largest department, with 30 original and diverse music shows broadcast every week. In addition to our on-air programs, the Music Department oversees WBRS’s extensive physical and digital music collections. With one of the largest record collections in New England, and an ever-growing library of new CDs and MP3s, our DJs have a comprehensive and eclectic array of music to pull from. We submit weekly charts of our top played new albums to the CMJ (College Music Journal) New Music Report, and our DJs log each song played on-air to Spinitron.com, where listeners can look to see what they’ve been listening to. The WBRS Music Department also puts on concerts at Brandeis’s student-run coffeehouse, Cholmondeley’s (more often known as “Chum’s”). Averaging four or five shows each semester, bands we’ve brought in the past include The Antlers, AVAN LAVA, Best Coast, Cloud Nothings, Das Racist, Oberhofer, Phantogram, Sleigh Bells, the So So Glos, Surfer Blood, Titus Andronicus, tUnE-yArDs, Twin Shadow, Wavves, YACHT, and many more. Be sure to check the WBRS Upcoming Events page to see what we have planned for this semester.
