Thanksgiving Leftovers…

Well now…this is awkward.

When last we met, I was getting ready to leave after seven years at WUMB and 21 years in Boston. There were good reasons for it. Senses of both obligation and genuinely missing things were part of it. Along the way, a funny thing happened. OK, maybe a few “funny” things. And then I decided to stay for now, after all.

They make me happy. Plus, holiday songs can be downright weird and creative. And practically every artist on WUMB’s regular playlists has at least one! Read More…

Programming Update

With December here and the New Year just around the corner, I wanted to go over some odds and ends in the world of Programming to discuss.

We said “goodbye” and now we say “hello” once again to old friend Perry Persoff who is back with WUMB.
