Have you noticed the attention to community radio lately? Now’s a great time to let people know we are here!
I’ve become a big fan of Melissa Chang’s WERA show “The Melting Pot,” a perky, inventive program that helps us “learn about Arlington by what people eat.”
In a recent episode, she took on fermented food, complete with a pickling party.
Board members, staff, and WERA producers alike will be working hard to make WERA’s first-ever fund drive a roaring success. Listen in and pony up!

It’s more than our motto; it’s a strategy for living and coping in challenging times. We make no judgments regarding anyone’s political beliefs or partisan loyalties. As always, we promote and facilitate free speech for all, regardless of ideology. We merely note that many people seem to have strong feelings these days and don’t seem to know what to do with them or how to express them. And while sitting and stewing or lying awake at night may be common responses to frustration and anxiety, they are neither healthy nor productive.
Do you want to produce or engineer a program for WERA-LP? Our newest classes will teach you to operate WERA's radio broadcast studio. We have a special rate of $45 until January 31, 2016. For $45, you will receive a one-year basic membership with Arlington Independent Media (AIM), enrollment in Introduction to Community Media and the On-Air Radio Broadcast class.

Building a station is hard work. Keeping that station on the air also has its challenges, mainly in the form of maintaining consistent and interesting programming. We could just throw music into our automation and have it crank out a never-ending playlist over the air. But, Arlington Independent Media and WERA-LP were granted a construction permit for a community radio station; we're building Radio Arlington.
