From the Desk of the Programming Director

Thank you!

I wanted to take a quick moment and truly thank each of you who took the time to donate during our recent Fall Member Drive. I’m continuously amazed at the number of listeners who in turn support the station. You hear lots of other Public Radio stations talk about Listener Support and how crucial it is…but I assure you it’s the most important thing at WUMB. All we can say is that we’re humbled, and thank you once again! Read More…

Greg Klyma 3rd Thursday!

Join us for WUMB’s next 3rd Thursday Concert at the Burren in Davis Square, Somerville on 11/15! The guest artist this month is Buffalo, NY native Greg Klyma. Greg has called Somerville home for over a decade, but has logged enough miles on the road as a touring musician to have traveled to the moon and back. All of that touring has allowed Greg to build up on of the deepest songbooks of any working musician I can think of, both his own songs and covers. I estimate he knows north of 1,000 songs by heart on guitar, piano, mandolin and harmonica. Read More…

From the Studio

IT WAS FIFTY YEARS AGO…


…November 25th,1968 when The Beatles’ self-titled album otherwise known as The White Album was released in the United States of America!

In honor of this momentous occasion and as a thank-you to all who pledged a commitment during our WUMB Fall Fundraiser, you are invited to our White Album Anniversary Party at The Hard Rock Café in Boston on the very day that The White Album was released back in 1968! Read More…

I’m not crying, I swear….

I read something recently about how people look to artists to make sense of the world. After watching the video for Neko Case’s “Last Lion of Albion”, I couldn’t agree more. The song itself ponders extinction, while the video demonstrates just how easy it is to let things slip away. The lion puppet in the video is very expressive as he moves through the landscape which changes from colorful to dark. No matter how times I’ve watched it, I still tear up at the end. Also, I am a cat person and it doesn’t take much for me to get emotional over any kind of feline…or animal, really. Read More…

YOU DON’T KNOW GEORGE

Aha!  You’re reading the Dixie Bee Line blog, so you must realize I mean George Jones.  😀  I still collect music obsessively, and even though most of my heroes are long gone, I still find things that really turn me on.  This is the case with George Jones.  I mean, I have some early George, but this album contains material from his early days, and I swear I just didn’t know George!  Read More…

Beloved Icons & Forgotten Legends

Folk Tales visits Emmylou Harris on November 3, including the perfect advice Pete Seeger gave a teenaged Emmylou, who worried she hadn’t suffered enough to sing folk songs. On November 10, a forgotten giant of early jazz, blues and popular music, from Storyville to Broadway, as performer, producer, publisher and hitmaker — Clarence Williams. Read More…
