105.9FM The Radiator: Stream & Schedule

Meet The Radiator:
100 Watts of Fury!

WOMM-LP ‘The Radiator’ is a licensed noncommercial low power FM radio station located in Burlington Vermont. The station began broadcasting with 100 watts in the autumn of 2007 on the frequency of 105.9 FM with an effective broadcast range of approximately five miles from the antenna site, located in the center of Burlington’s downtown. In-between local DJs who produce an eclectic variety of shows, Big Heavy World plays Vermont-made music from its huge music archive.

Burlington Vermont is our home, and one of our favorite places in the whole world. It’s Vermont’s biggest city, for what that’s worth — there’s around 40,000 of us. Burlington has a vibrant arts community and legions of friendly hippies, snowboard manufacturers and craft breweries, rock-ribbed Republican woodchucks and one of the most active Progressive movements in the country. The Radiator’s programming shows off our diverse and creative community.

Our Mission

The Radiator’ is a nonprofit listener-supported media center generating and transmitting programming that fosters community awareness and civic engagement; encourages and promotes the creative public of the Burlington area; and provides a platform for multigenerational technical education and personal empowerment.

Be a DJ on The Radiator!

Burlington’s community radio station 105.9FM welcomes everyone of every age and experience to bring your creative spirit and friendship to the radio waves at ‘The Radiator.’ New DJ orientations are hosted weekly and you don’t need to know anything about radio to get involved – we’ll teach and cheerlead until you’re boldly sharing your interests, music, talk, or mime with the rest of Burlington. If you like community radio but not microphones, you’re welcome to volunteer at the Radiator or Big Heavy World, the independent music office that hosts and manages the station, helping us manage and grow our inclusive, nonprofit organization.

If you’d like to tour the station and get the official 20-minute “New DJ Orientation” experience before making a decision to join the on-air staff, send the info below.

First, here’s a few things to know:

  • The Radiator prefers not to duplicate programming found on other local radio stations. Play Top 40 pop or Country Hits if you want, but mix it up with deep album cuts or songs that broaden our local audience’s experience of the genre. We worked very hard to get a license to broadcast to our community and we don’t want to waste it.
  • All programming on The Radiator is local. It’s OK to call it “hyper-local,” even. We don’t syndicate shows produced outside of Vermont, but this probably wouldn’t bother you since you’re asking if you can come do a show.
  • Shows are one or two-hours long, on a regular weekly schedule. Be prepared to commit to that if you have a show.
  • Talk shows are AWESOME. Don’t be shy. YOU’RE awesome. (And spoken word, performance art, and radio theater are pretty neat, too).
