WUMB May Program Guide

May

Well, usually around this time we’d be discussing the birth of Spring, getting outside and perhaps even a little Spring Training. Obviously things are different in May of 2020, but I hope this message is finding you healthy and happy.

We do have a ton of great Programming happening in May, including Birthday celebrations for icons like Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan and more. We’ll have new episodes of most of your favorite Programs as well.

Right now, we have some important news to get to….

Back in March we began our Spring Fundraiser literally when all the news hit. We decided to end the Fundraiser early ahead of meeting our goal because we really felt “getting back to normal” was important. Music is so powerful that oftentimes it can change our attitude in a given day as well as the joy it brings to all of us. We’re going to continue to do that for as long as this pandemic plays out, but at this very moment we are behind. We’re going to be doing a very brief online-only Fundraiser starting May 14th. As a small not-for-profit business we are about 55,000 away from our overall goal, and your support is greatly needed. We can’t stress enough that over 80% of our entire operating budget is comprised of individual contributions from listeners just like you. Nobody is going to write a magic check at the end of the day to keep WUMB going. It takes the work of our audience, and that’s why your pledge is so important to us.

If you could….please make a first-time donation or an additional gift between May 14-18th. It would really help us out. No gift is too large and no gift too small. You can donate online safely and securely at wumb.orgThank you!
