WJFD 97.3 FM is the only 50,000-watts FM radio station in New England broadcasting in the Portuguese language 24/7/365.  From its 600’ tower in the New Bedford area it reaches the various Portuguese, Brazilian and Cape Verdean communities located  throughout  Eastern New England from Salem, NH to Mystic, CT; from Worcester, MA to Boston, MA and the world via the internet.  The 97.3 frequency has broadcast in the Portuguese language from the 50’s, initially as WBSM-FM (1950-1972), then WGCY-FM (1972-1975) and finally as WJFD-FM (1975-present).

Victor: As new director of the UMass Dartmouth Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture, I will be talking to WJFD’s Irene Amaral between 12-noon and 1:00 pm (Boston time) about my ideas for the UMassD Portuguese Center 2017-2021 and for Portuguese at UMassD. If you cannot understand Portuguese and are interested in this topic, please e-mail me about it, and I will ask one of our talented younger colleagues, a Doctoral Fellow in Luso-Afro-Brazilian Studies, to translate the main points for you.
