Dear WUMB Members,


I’m writing to introduce myself to you.  My name is Ed Lambert and I am the Vice Chancellor for Government Relations and Public Affairs at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.  The Division I oversee has responsibility, among other things, for communications and all external affairs.

Over the past few years, the station has been part of our Division of Enrollment Management, under the direction of Kathy Teehan, a longtime supporter of  WUMB.  With Ms. Teehan’s retirement imminent, discussions were in the works about moving WUMB to another department that would be a more logical placement administratively, ensuring continued growth and creating new synergy.

As such, the station has now officially been transferred to the Division of Government Relations and Public Affairs.  This transfer will not necessitate any change to the broadcast service you’ve enjoyed for over three decades.  We wanted you to know that the University has been active in ensuring its continuing excellence and will continue to advance and evolve the missions of a public station by serving the community and region.

Concurrent with this administrative change, I am please to let you know that Patty Domeniconi has been named General Manager of the station.  She has been acting as an interim in this position since the retirement of station founder Pat Monteith over two years ago.  We feel that her continuing leadership will ensure that you will continue to enjoy the quality entertainment and information programming that has been a hallmark of WUMB.

Thank you once again for joining UMass Boston in supporting WUMB and helping to maintain this quality broadcast service, not only for our communities here in Eastern New England, but for listeners all around the world on WUMB.org.

Grey Season    Saturday, August 9, 2014

Grey Season electrifies living room music, fixing harmonies atop folk-influenced rock ‘n’ roll. The variety show that is a Grey Season performance may include the occasional five-part harmony, blues rooted guitar solos and lyricism, and memorable melodies driven by the nostalgic plucking of bouzoukis and banjos. Grey Season is a band that calls upon a collective musical memory while pushing forward with the power of song and the hearts of a growing audience. Grey Season’s “songs on life, love, heartache, and hope are so wonderfully constructed they could leave an impression on even the coldest of souls,” wrote the online magazine Under the Gun Review.
