Your family here at WERS is with you during these uniquely challenging and stressful times. Now on our WERS Music Blog, we’re providing our readers and listeners with a new series, called WERS Companion Guides, to bring you helpful resources to get you through whatever struggles you’re going through right now. Check out last week’s edition, where we highlighted resources and relief funds for musicians and other artists struggling during this crisis.
This week on WERS Companion Guides, we’re putting the spotlight on essential workers. From doctors and nurses, waste management workers, grocery store and pharmacy employees, postal workers and other delivery personnel, these people and so many more are making great sacrifices to help us all. Below are just a few ways that all of us can say thank you to essential workers, the people keeping the light on during these dark times.
Each spring, WERS launches our week-long Live Music Week fundraiser, and it’s just about that time...but things turned out a bit differently than we planned this year.
Here at WERS, we understand that connecting with the music is more important now than ever before, so we’ve decided to do something totally different. In place of a week-long fundraiser, we’re coming together on one special day: Live Music Friday.
The temperature is just starting to get above 40 degrees, but sometimes here in New England, it can still feel like the dead of winter. Summer is still a little ways away here on the coast, but listening to music is one way to warm our hearts, even when it feels like the dead of winter. WERS Staff Writer Tatum Jenkins knows what it’s like to want a little bit of sunshine on those cloudy Boston days, so she’s put together this playlist full of summer jams. Here are some songs you can listen to now to make you feel like you’re on a beach in July, even if just for the duration of a song.
