We are having problems with our web stream. It is working now, however we are having intermittent internet outages - taking our web stream temporarily down. There way be a bit of choppiness this weekend. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available. Thank you for your patience!
We've narrowed the issue to our STL line (a special AT&T line that carries the audio from our studios to LeVeque Tower). Paul's at LeVeque now waiting for an AT&T tech; we're trying to get our trouble ticket escalated, too.

Are you ready to tailgate, but stay toasty-warm? Then join WCBE for our 5th annual “Beat Michigan” party! On Saturday, November 26th, we’ll power up the big screens at Woodlands Tavern on W. 3rd Avenue in Grandview. Watch The Big Game between OSU and Michigan, with us inside. We’ll also share tailgate food from Great Point Kitchen, play trivia, and more! Doors open at 10am, and the game kicks off at noon!
We are currently experiencing issues regarding our event submission page. The glitch seems to be related to posts with pictures. It is recommended that users first submit the event with no image to ensure the data/info gets into the system. You can then try to attach a photo. Images should be JPG or PNG only, no GIFs, and not exceed 300k.
Come out to Wolf's Ridge brewing Thursday, November 10th for WCBE's Game Night! Games like Aerodome, Ralpartha, and Chaos Wars will be available, but you can bring your own games (and friends). Admission is $5 at the door and a cash bar available with portion of the beer proceeds going to WCBE.
The more money raised during the Warp Drive means less time used for the Fall on-air fundraiser. The concept is simple: a full day of on-air pitching will be eliminated for every $38K raised in advance. When WCBE achieves this goal, the station can get YOU back to what's important -- the shows you love to listen to, such as Morning Edition, Fresh Air, The World Cafe, and Afropop Worldwide, all interruption free.
