Focus on MIT’s Own WMBR

Phillip Burrowes column [“Member Madness,” Nov. 19] was a shot in the face to an amazing resource at MIT: its own radio station! Mr. Burrowes focused the first part of his article on the fundraising efforts of local station WERS of Emerson College, unaware that the MIT station (WMBR, 88.1 FM) had concluded its very own annual fundraiser the day before. Both stations are non-commercial and run by volunteers, and take only one week out of the year to raise money for their operating costs. I think it would have been more effective to The Tech’s audience to focus on an event taking place on our very own campus rather than the mirror image occurring somewhere else.
