About the show

sigtronica is a weekly radio show on WMBR 88.1FM in Cambridge, MA, USA. The sounds range from older electronic and experimental music to modern movements in new music.

The early seasons of sigtronica were co-hosted with Christine Liu, now host of her own show called sans serif. Old playlists and information about that joint version of sigtronica are still available.
