WUMB January Program Guide

Programming with Jay Moberg

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you to everyone who’s been listening and supporting WUMB!  We’re not out of Winter quite yet but nevertheless we’re looking forward to Spring.  We have a LOT of exciting things happening behind the scenes at WUMB and I’d like to share some of what’s taking place:

Guest Mix.  You might remember Guest Mix from years back at WUMB.  It was a really terrific show where musicians and industry folk were able to play Guest DJ and play songs that inspired them to get into music, what they’re currently listening to, songs they wish they’d written etc.  Over the years I’ve heard many of you ask about potentially bringing it back.  Because of your support for WUMB, we were able to hire a part time producer to work specifically on this show and the good news is that we’re almost there!  I can’t give you an exact time table of when Guest Mix will be ready to launch but I expect sometime in April you’ll find out.

WUMB Member Concerts.  We’ve had some great Member Events over the last few months and more are in store!  Sunday, February 28th marked our first WUMB Member Concert partnering with The Extended Play Series that resides at The Fallout Shelter in Norwood.  It’s a really cool space and they do tremendous work of using video to record live roots music.  We were lucky enough to have Girls, Guns & Glory be the featured performers and this is something we’re definitely going to do again!  Later in March we’re teaming up with Club Passim for another Member Concert so keep in tuned to WUMB or just keep up to date with our website.

Live at WUMB.  I hope you enjoy having live artists play at WUMB!  We’ve been so lucky to have artists like Amy Helm, Peter Rowan, Barnstar, Warren Haynes and many others to come play live in our studio.  We have MANY more in studio sessions lined up over the next couple of months.  We have everything ranging from nationally touring artists, to Local musicians and everything in between.

There are many more things happening behind the scenes…unfortunately this is all I can share with you at the moment.  Just know that it’s because of your support that we’ve been able to grow, add new staff and Programs and much more.  Your support really makes everything possible here.  If you’re already a Member in good standing…THANK YOU!  If maybe you haven’t supported WUMB in a while, or maybe want to give the gift of Membership, please consider supporting us!  Thanks for reading and once again for supporting WUMB!
