DR. DOG is coming to Bates College for WRBC’s first big show this fall.
Come see the FREE concert September 25 on the Library Quad, brought to you by WRBC 91.5 FM and CHC.
The mini music fest will begin in the early afternoon and will end by 9 PM. Bates’ own Time Travelers will kick off the event, followed by opener Delicate Steve.
Dr. Dog’s latest album, “Shame, Shame,” has been wildly well-received. Pitchfork hailed the work “arguably the band’s finest moment,” and music critic Doug Wallen categorized their sound as “a little folk, blues, indie rock, soul, bluegrass—and a whole lot of down-home harmonizing. It conjures images of old friends sitting on a porch swapping instruments and just letting the tape recorder run.”
Mark your calenders and get psyched for an epic start to the year!

The time has arrived to come clean about WRBCs favorite mascot. Long absent from concerts, trivia night and the front porch of Wilson House, many of you have probably been wondering what could have possibly happened to our very own 12 x 8-foot paper maché mask. After many months of internal deliberation, I have determined that the only way to properly honor this elusive member of WRBCs ever expanding mascot collection is to pay tribute to its integral role as a full-fledged member of the radio station from 2008 to 2009.
While the Super Bowl is certainly first and foremost a football game, the advertising is also a big reason why people tune into the program. Google, who normally doesn’t waste their time or energy on television marketing put in a really cute advert called “Parisian Love” to this years program, and I have simply been in love with it.
As advertising it sends an interesting and clear message on a pretty low budget and with limited audio, no celebrity faces and little gimmicks. My kudos to the ad people over at Google for creating such a piece.
In a moment of intrigue, I wondered if I could create a similar piece for our humble little radio station. While being a little different, this keeps in the tradition of the Google advertisement. Nevertheless the sentiment is more in line with our little operation here in Maine.
Note: This is a republishing of an article originally posted on January 17th. The significant change is that the band Toro Y Moi has been added to the line up of the March 5 Washed Out and Small Black show.
This Winter Semester is going to be a decidedly epic time for concerts at Bates College courtesy of your friends at WRBC. While a few more shows are in the works, the first week of March will be a crowded, but decidedly epic week of shows.
The first show, to be held on Wednesday, March 3rd, will feature the music of Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Hey Mama. This contemporary rock ‘n roll four-piece band, features Avi Salloway and Celia Woodsmith, formerly of the aptly named Avi and Celia. This show, like most of our shows, will be in the Benjamin Mays Center at Bates College. Read more »
