Programming Update

Well here we are…already in October with changing leaves and pumpkin-flavored everything available just about everywhere! Here are some updates that are taking place in Programming:

This has been a lot of work over the last few months but we have finally been able to give Folk Tales with Scott Alarik a second airing on the weekends! I’ve taken many a phone call/email from you over the last couple of years asking for an additional time slot to hear Folk Tales. We’re happy to announce that starting on October 21st you’ll be able to hear Folk Tales on Sunday evening at 7pm as well as the original airing on Saturdays at Noon. We’re excited by this second airing and we hope you are as well. Read More…

Farewell for now…

“San Diego Serenade” by Tom Waits is one of those great songs that takes the expression, “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone,” and gives it a gut feeling. Funny, I used to think of that song from the perspective of California…from where I came from. Now after 21 years in Boston, the tables are turned. Two years after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, I found myself walking along Boylston Street in Boston thinking that if you’ve been here more than a few years, you can’t wash this town out of your skin. Now in the last few days I’ve found myself looking at various places in the area and thinking…I’m going to miss this place. Read More…

Ode to Cotton Eyed Joe

Friends, I’ve been doing hillbilly on the radio for many years. Sometimes you just wonder if anyone’s listening! I know, you guys turn out at fund-raising time, and I love you for it, believe me. But once in a great while I get a letter like this, and it really makes my day. Read More…

Must Be the Season of the Witch

For as much as I love summer, I will tip my hat to October. It’s cool enough to get cozy but not so cold that you need to think too much about what you’re wearing before you leave the house. Read More…

All About October on H61

-hard to believe it’s October ALREADY, soon the leaves will have to be raked, the heat will be an issue, and those Saturday mornings will not be quite as nice as they have been, but…H61 soldiers on, finishing September strong with our back-to-back covers feature…our second! and looks to be more… Read More…

WUMB Acoustic Music Camps

WUMB Blues Music Camp Re-Cap

Wow, thank you for a great weekend at our first WUMB Blues Music Camp! It was so cool to see all of the work that went into putting it together come alive. I had a feeling that once everybody started making music together and learning that it would all be worthwhile. You made it so! Read More…
