Welcome to Colonial Beach Community Radio

Colonial Beach Community Radio is made possible through the generosity of our underwriters

If you weren’t able to attend, or maybe even if you were, you can listen to our coverage of the event!  Our Program Director Tom Larson attended and recorded the festivities!  Yes, there will be the speeches, but you’ll also hear the voices of a number of your neighbors. The segment ends with a interview […]

As you may know, the historic sailing vessel Edna Lockwood visited Colonial Beach during the Potomac River Festival.  When she departed, they sailed up the Potomac for two stops in Washington, D.C.  On their return trip toward the Chesapeake Bay, they decided to stop in Colonial Beach for the night.  That’s when I caught up […]

WWER will be airing a special July 4th music show that will put you in the spirit leading up to the fireworks, and provide the soundtrack throughout the pyrotechnics.   Bring your boom box to the beach and tune in to A Colonial 4th! If you’re on the point, put speakers on your front porch! If […]

Colonial Beach Community Radio includes the Colonial Beach Community Foundation (CBCF) on its list of sponsors.  But make no mistake, the Colonial Beach Community Foundation is much more than a “sponsor” of WWER.  For 2019, the foundation is the entity holding the FCC license for the station.  More importantly, CBCF has provided a substantial contribution […]

Was it just me, or did Riverfest seem bigger and better than ever this year?  The carnival was shiny and new, with cool lighting on the rides.  The weather was just about perfect on Saturday, with lots of people enjoying the beach, the boardwalk and tours of the Edna Lockwood.  The fireworks were spectacular as […]

Thanks to everyone for the continued support.  Our June 1 launch weekend was a lot of fun and we heard a lot of wonderful feedback about the music and programs!  After a bit of a bump in the road technically, we are back on air, working on making our signal more reliable. We are also […]

At about 8:00am this morning (Thu June 6th), WWER returned to the air with our replacement transmitter.  It appears that our signal is significantly stronger than it was over the weekend — with a reach of nearly 10 miles!  So that’s awesome. What’s a little less awesome are the occasional drop outs we’re having.  We […]

Transmitter Troubles Being Addressed To Our WWER Listeners: On Monday morning, the WWER staff decided to take forthright corrective action to ensure the weak / disappearing FM signal problem gets resolved once and for all.  To do that, we made the tough choice to go off the air on only our third day of operation.  […]

While we had a great launch and lots of people have congratulated us on a job well done, the one thorn in our side is that we have had a bit of down time in our first day on the air.  Our transmitter seems to be having some problems and cuts off now and then […]

Welcome to YOUR radio station.  Tune to 88.1 FM and enjoy! At midnight Friday night, WWER went on the air – live!  Ted, Charlie, Dave L, and Tom said a few words to mark the occassion.  We clinked our champagne glasses and engaged our automation system to carry us through our first week.  You can […]
