Programming Update

Well here we are…already in October with changing leaves and pumpkin-flavored everything available just about everywhere! Here are some updates that are taking place in Programming:

This has been a lot of work over the last few months but we have finally been able to give Folk Tales with Scott Alarik a second airing on the weekends! I’ve taken many a phone call/email from you over the last couple of years asking for an additional time slot to hear Folk Tales. We’re happy to announce that starting on October 21st you’ll be able to hear Folk Tales on Sunday evening at 7pm as well as the original airing on Saturdays at Noon. We’re excited by this second airing and we hope you are as well.

Now you might say to yourself, “But Local Folk is on Sunday evenings at 7pm….”. The final episode of Local Folk will air on Sunday, October 14th at 7pm. After that…Perry is packing his bags and heading back to California so please take this opportunity to hear Local Folk while you still can.

Please save the date of Sunday, November 25th. We’ll be announcing full details later this week but we’ll be having a very special WUMB Member Event hosted by Cha Chi Loprette and Breakfast with the Beatles. It’s taking place at the Hard Rock Café function room here in Boston and we’ll be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The White Album. Details will be forthcoming but keep an eye out for an email about signing up.

Finally, we need your support as we head into our Fall Fundraiser! Between now and October 19th we have a special thank you gift if you donate early. Go to wumb.org for all the details but essentially the stronger we start the Fundraiser…the better chance we have to end successfully. The biggest chunk of our overall budget comes from individual contributions from listeners who become Members. Your support today means we can continue to run locally produced Programs like Highway 61 Revisited, Folk Tales and Celtic Twilight. It also allows us to program the kind of Music you want to hear. Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, New and Local Music and everything in between…it’s all made possible by your support. A sincere thank you from all of us at WUMB.

Until next time….thanks for your continued support of WUMB!

Best,
