WUMB April Program Guide

November 2015 Archives


Every Sunday morning at 8:00 AM, things begin to swing at WUMB when Jackie Brush takes The A Train to bring you the very best of jazz, blues and R&B:  “My love of tearl-hineshis music is in my DNA, a natural born radio brat – I grew up listening to great Jazz my Dad played on the radio.  Fortunately for me my Dad took his job home with him.  In our house if the radio wasn’t on the record player was.  Jack Brush got his start as a DJ down south.  He’d tell tales of meeting Louis Armstrong, Earl “Fatha” Hines,  Ella Fitzgerald and so many more.”

It’s a Big Ol’ Goofy World

I am happy to report that I have not turned into a ginger plant.
Between the week I battled a nasty virus and the following ten days – which was our Fall Fundraiser – I seemed to subsist on hand sanitizer and ginger tea. Does anyone have nightmares of morphing into a ginger plant? Just getting that thought must be an indication that Halloween remains in the air…

At this time we do find ourselves steadily traversing the orange brick road between Halloween and Thanksgiving.
