WUMB April Program Guide

In the News

Now, More than Ever…Thank You!

“For the times, they are a-changin’.”

And we are changing with the times. The Coronavirus pandemic has necessitated many changes in our operations at WUMB but one thing has not changed — our commitment to bringing you the music you love, 24-7, to help all of us make it through these difficult days, together. Read More…

April

Well it’s certainly a unique time out there….I hope you’re safe and healthy these days. It has most certainly been a unique few weeks. I’ll try and catch you up as quick as I can…. Read More…

Welcome to March

As our Spring Fundraiser is approaching, I’d like to take a moment and thank you for all of your love shown to WUMB whether it’s through a pledge, a phone call, email or just the fact that you’ve listened. We really do appreciate it, and simply can’t do this kind of radio without your generous support. Our Spring Fundraiser starts next week and I’d like to urge you to consider renewing your Membership, making an additional gift or perhaps becoming a Member for the first time yourself. Read More…

February

January seemed to stretch on forever and here we are finally in February! We’ve got a ton of great programming percolating here at WUMB. Here’s what’s cooking:

New Music – we’ve already added dozens and dozens of albums in the new year. We’ve heard from established artists like Norah Jones, The Wood Brothers and Robert Cray while also introducing you to brand new artists like William Prince, Tre Burt, Bonny Light Horseman and more. Expect more of this throughout 2020. We’re trying to add more new music this year than ever before! Read More…

Seeking Volunteers for On-Air Fund Drives

Would you like to become a WUMB Pledge Room Volunteer?

As a listener-sponsored radio station, WUMB currently runs four (4) On-Air Fund Drives in March, June, October and December each year, and volunteers provide much-needed support! During each Fund Drive volunteers answer phones in the Pledge Room located on the UMass Boston Campus in the Healey Library. Read More…

January 2020

Here we are in 2020…it already seems like it’s going to be a pretty strange year, so I wanted to give you some information involving Programming at WUMB to take your mind off things. Read More…

Looking Back…and Ahead

2019 was a very good year for WUMB. Thanks to you, we have gone from success to success, even setting a couple of records along the way! And we have great things in store for you in 2020.

Our Fall Fundraiser was the highlight of the year.  We had set our most ambitious fundraising goal ever, and thanks to your generous contributions we not only met and surpassed that goal but we did it in record time — ending the fundraiser earlier than ever before!  Due to recent changes at UMass Boston we must now raise our entire operating budget, and 80% of that comes from listener support.  All of us at WUMB are humbled and grateful for this demonstration that you share our commitment to this kind of music, as well as our mission of supporting local artists and venues.

November

It seems like “Thank you” is the general statement for our November Program Guide. All of us at WUMB are just humbled and thrilled over the success of our Fall Member Drive. We repeatedly mentioned on air that it was our “biggest goal ever” and you came through. Like always, we promise to do our best for you over the course of this year. There’s so much great music out there and we’ll continue to find the best from the past and present to play for you each day. Read More…

Happy October!

Here are some news/notes from the world of Programming!

First off I’d like to thank you for your continued support of WUMB. As I’m sure you know our Fall Fundraiser is coming up quickly and our sights are set on the largest goal we’ve ever had at WUMB of $205,000. Over 80% of everything that it takes to keep WUMB on the air comes from individual contributions, not large ones from Corporate Underwriting. With that, I’m asking you directly to get your pledge in early if possible! We’ve got a pretty cool WUMB 2020 Calendar as a special thank you gift if you can contribute before October 18th. Thank you…we really do appreciate all of your support! Read More…

September!

I hope you had a great Summer and a successful re-entry to work, school and whatever else is part of your weekly routine. We’ve had a busy Summer gearing up for an even bigger Fall. Here are some notes from Programming! Read More…
