The 2024 Spring Fundraiser is complete.

You’ve done it WBER family! You’ve gotten us over the finish line. The goal of 65k has been met!!! There are so many emotions being felt by everyone here at the station – Bliss, Joy, Relief, Love, Determination, Appreciation, Thankfulness.
We cannot thank you enough for your perseverance in continuing to donate, to raise awareness, and to generally support the station even after the end of the on-air portion of this effort. It’s been uncharted territory and you once again defied the predictions of some to get us to that lofty goal, as you always have. You’re amazing, and we promise we’ll continue to do everything we can to be worthy of that support as long as we can.
We you all! #YourePartOfIt!

Hear a song on the air and are interested in knowing who was the band/artist?

WBER Streaming News

You may have noticed that we have updated the WBER website to include an embedded audio player for streaming the station. Starting July 1st this will be the best way to listen to WBER online. Other 3rd party services (including TuneIn, which also provides the embedded player) will continue to work, but if you are currently streaming WBER through a saved link in the audio player on your computer (ie. iTunes, VLC, etc) please take a moment to try the new player. The saved link in your audio player will not work after July 1.

WBER also offers remote broadcasting services to area school districts which currently include Webster and Fairport. WBER is o­ne of America’s first full time Alternative Music radio stations, believing in and supporting this genre of music long before it became commercially viable.
