Summer Leaving

I just LOVE summer nights.  Love, love, love them.  Not sticky humid 90 degrees at 9pm.  Yet warm enough, with just the right amount of comfortable cool to be a welcome relief from flypaper-joke conditions of the day.    There is something so liberating about a warm night.  We usually shut down at night.  But when it’s warm enough to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes at dark, it’s like the evening whispering in your ear, “go ahead—play a little longer…dance outside to some music…smile a little longer.”  Read More…

England with Dave

It seems to me that we are only beginning to harness the true power of the internet, that being the ability to make massive volumes of content easily available to one and all. A new Folk Music related resources has recently come online and I’d like to highlight that as well as a couple of other projects that may be of interest. Read More…

Dylan Dylan Dylan

The late 60’s and early 70’s proved to be a fascinating time for the music of Bob Dylan.  After releasing the masterpieces in the 60’s, Dylan dropped one that still has people scratching their head…the sometimes entertaining, sometimes confusing Self Portrait.  Read More…

New Music With Jay Moberg

Each month when we release a WUMB Program Guide, the staff collectively thinks of a story, or an “angle” to share with you.  Being the Music Director my instincts always lead me to share new music with you.  The fact is, we’re inundated with it here…we get so many new releases that it’s basically impossible to keep track.  So instead of sharing who’s “up and coming” or “buzz worthy”, I figured I would share with you a very well recognized name.  Read More…

Summer Reading with Dave Palmater

Really, how many Danielle Steele novels can you read in one summer? If you’re looking for some light, but educational, late summer reading, I have some suggestions. And cheap ones, because, I’ll admit it, I haunt the book racks in the Dollar Stores, Under 5s and Job Lot stores of all varieties. You probably know that books, once they leave the shelves of your local book store, hit the remainder table. Their next stop, before becoming recycling, or door stops, or something, is the Dollar Store. There, for a buck or so, you can find some enjoyable reading now that you’ve consumed that stack of paperbacks that you’ve been toting from beach to beach. Here are a few of my favorite “cheapo” finds. Read More…

What have you missed so far?

It’s funny how each year that goes by I always ask myself “can this year be as good for new music as last year?”.  With that being said, I had my doubts at the beginning of the year whether or not 2013 would be a good one for new tunes, but (as always) it is!  As we look back at the halfway point of 2013, here’s a list of albums that maybe flew under your radar over the last few weeks!
