WUMB June Program Guide

June Update:

Hi everyone!

First and foremost before I begin I just want to take a moment to express how thankful we all are at WUMB for your support! We asked and you answered our call…all I can say is thank you for your support and we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you!

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been sending us really nice comments through email and social media. Since life has changed for many of us I find myself appreciating the things that are constant and that I find value in. I think that’s the reason we’re getting such nice feedback. Again, all I can say is thank you and we’ll continue do our best for you!

Programming Update: Starting in June we’re finally able to bring back Breakfast with the Beatles with Host Cha Chi Loprette. You’ll start to hear new episodes air this Saturday.

For now Folk Tales will continue to be archived pieces. We’re hoping that by Fall we can have all of our staff back in place to resume production. Folk Tales is a big show with lots of moving pieces and during Quarantine it’s been extremely difficult to get those pieces lined up.

We’ll continue having Perry Persoff in the Host chair for now on Sunday Morning Brew. We’re hoping to be able to bring back Rob Hochschild at a later date.

We’ve ceased the broadcast and production of Commonwealth Journal. We had been running archived episodes with the hope of bringing the show back but with the uncertainty going forward we’ve decided to cease production of the show and also the archived performances.

While we’re here why don’t you check out The Right Mind Media Podcast? It airs on WUMB at the new time of Sunday Morning at 7:30. Recently they’ve done episodes touching on issues like dealing with the new norm, dealing with depression, anxiety and more.

Before I go, one more “thank you.” Thanks for supporting us. Thanks for listening! We really do appreciate it and know that because of your support we will continue to be here for you providing an escape with thoughtfully selected sets of music.
