Whenever I’m in the Boston area on a weekend, I tune in to Emerson College’s radio station, WERS, and try to catch their afternoon All A Cappella show.
A cappella singing has come a long way from the (already amazing) Take Six days, and with the inclusion of beat-boxing (thank you, Rap!) it’s moved into the hard-to-believe realm.
If you can invest any part of the 5:35 it takes to hear the Boston University Dear Abbys take on U2’s “Where The Streets Have No Name” with nothing but their collective voices, I promise you won’t consider it to be time wasted.
I’m sorry there’s no video to accompany this, as I’d love to see it myself!
And BTW, you can live-stream this program at WERS.ORG. I believe it runs Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 5pm EST.
