Welcome to WCBN

What is CBN? WCBN is the University of Michigan student-run community freeform radio station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We broadcast to the University and its surrounding communities from the Basement of the Student Activities Building in downtown treetown at a frequency of 88.3MHz. Our emphasis is on alternative broadcasting, that is, exposing our listenership to things they can't hear on other radio stations.

You can also listen on your smartphone with WCBN for Android or WCBN for IOS.

Soundtap Madness - Help Us Win!

We need your help!  Sign in with your facebook stuff at soundtap.com/madness and click on WCBN to stream.

The contest is to see how many listeners we can get using the stream.  Soundtap is totally not-for-profit (not even ads on their page!) and there seems to be no apparent gain for them from this aside from publicity.

We crushed WMBR, but now Rutgers' The Core are giving us a fight.  Wayne State will be tough, if we get to them.

Remember - you have to be signed in for your time to count!

This Just In: WMBR Is Dumb

We are head to head against WMBR in Soundtap Madness, a March Madness style thing or something.

We won't be taken down by those dorks!  If you listen online, you can do that at soundtap, but, actually, we don't really care that much about winning the contest.

All we care about is giving college radio the all out war it's always wanted.  What better place to start than between Ann Arbor and Boston.  

They might have Aerosmith, but we have Iggy Pop.  They might have the New Kids on the Block, but we have Robert Ashley.

Organized by UM students for UM students, the 5th annual Student Late Night event at UMMA will be a fun-filled, late-night creative explosion. LOVE ART MORE will feature hands-on art making activities, original performances, swinging sounds courtesy of WCBN DJs, a photo booth, free food, and more. This is sure to be an arty extravaganza you won't want to miss! 

For the makers and doers - LOVE ART MORE is also a larger participatory project which invites UM students to explore, animate and broaden their relationship to art and to UMMA - in other words, to get creative! Visit our website for the list of things to make and do. Everyone is invited to get involved! http://www.umma.umich.edu/loveartmore
