History[edit]

The station's late night/early morning programming, "Uncommon Rotation", was installed in early 2005 to replace the station's only free-form shows, formerly produced and programmed by the DJs and students independent of the station's professional management. Each night, different DJs hosted a wide variety of programming that highlighted material that was truly "uncommon", such as outsider music, videogame/circuit bent sound, sound collage and musique concrete, political commentary and numerous other subjects. These shows were cancelled and the station no longer allows free-form programming. Gashly 06:20, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Completely new lineup (previously unsigned 28 Sept. 2006 comment from Scotto263)
Yes, college radio formats and schedules do change over time. Absent from the article is anything about WERS' under rock programming that ran all night throguhout the 80s and into the early 90s. Also absent is why that programming ended, why the station purged its collection of punk/indie music, and why that's not present in the article. Anyone out there have the story, with references to back it up? Morganfitzp (talk) 21:15, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
