"WBAR" is the college radio station of Barnard College in New York City. Currently airing online-only, WBAR was developed as a freeform alternative to WKCR-FM on the Columbia University campus. In addition to broadcasting an array of shows, WBAR hosts several live concerts per year in Morningside Heights, including the WBAR-B-Q, a free, all-ages, day-long showcase of bands and food, as well as a Winter Formal concert event in December. Recent performers have included Palehound, Japanese Breakfast, Sammus, Ravyn Lenae, and more.


WBAR launched in the early 1990s, and was formerly located in Barnard College's McIntosh Hall before it was moved by the administration to the basement of Sulzberger Hall in the spring of 2007, pending demolition of McIntosh.

WBAR used to host Radiothons, a fund-raising week-long series of live shows, interviews and give-aways, held in the WBAR studio. Alcohol was served. Dirty Projectors headlined 2005's Radiothon closing show,[1] supported by Akron/Family, Other Passengers, R. Stevie Moore and The Shot Heard Round the World. The show was held at The West End Basement.

WBAR and NYU also held a Battle of the Bands on October 25, 2002.
