The Circle Comes Around

WUMB’s 3rd Thursday At The Burren live concert broadcast for August wraps up Year Two of the series.  And what a way to do it.  We’ve got Dennis Brennan. Read More…

Local Folk Alert!

We spent some time with Rhode Island bands on Sunday Aug 5th.  On August 12th we’ll look at what I humbly think are some of the best new releases by area bands so far in 2018. Read More…

Folk Tales Goes Full-Tilt Hootenanny

1969 – The End of the Beginning, or The End of the Innocence?

One Year at a Time takes a listen to 1969, stopping off in Woodstock, and traveling down south to sample the work of Duane Allman, up to the Dakotas for the eternal Peggy Lee, and finally out to San Francisco, to hear an influence on Led Zeppelin‘s first album that went uncredited for decades.

Same Show….New Name!

I don’t think there’s a day that goes by that I don’t receive some sort of interesting note/email/phone call from a Listener or a Member discussing various topics of WUMB. I did however receive a highly unusual message last week with “cease and desist” in the title of the email. With heightened curiosity I opened the note to be informed that WUMB needs to change the name of Acoustic Sunrise. Read More…
