I’m not sure that there are any humans who still visit this website, but in case there are, this is for you. This is the archived site for sigtronica, the radio show I used to host on WMBR 88.1FM in Cambridge, MA. This is, however, not what the site used to look like, but due to complications with the over decade old original code, it’s unlikely that it will ever look like it used to. However, all of the links to archived shows seem to still work, and the playlists for each show still appear. Enjoy.
August 14th Show
The last show of sigtronica on WMBR.
Thanks for all of your support over the years, your calls and e-mails, and the music you sent me. I’m hoping to continue sigtronica either online or on another radio station in the Ithaca area. Keep subscribed to the feed or visit the website for details within the next couple of weeks.
Thanks again for a great four years on WMBR!
