WUMB November Program Guide

In the News

From the Desk of the Programming Director

Thank you!

The proverbial dust has cleared from our Fall Fundraiser and I sit here at my desk at WUMB completely humbled by what I witnessed over the last two weeks.  I would personally like to take this moment to thank each person that made a contribution or simply listened and stuck with us during the Fundraiser.  I am just floored by the amount of support WUMB received in a time where much of the country can’t agree on the color of the sky, had just witnessed horrific natural disasters, and more.  I don’t have exact totals in front of me at the moment but this little radio station nestled in the basement of the Healy Library in the University of Massachusetts Boston just received more support than we ever have in the past 35 years of the station’s history.

Time and again WUMB listeners, whether they have just discovered the station or listened for years, tell us how much they love the station.  If you have ever phoned in to the station, sent us an email, stopped by the WUMB booth at an event or simply thought you should get around to contacting us but never did, here’s an opportunity to consider: become a WUMB Ambassador.

October!!  Here we are already in October!  I hope as I’m writing this you’re doing well in a world that is often times a bit more difficult to navigate than what we’d like.  To me, it all circles back to the music.  I want to take a moment to thank you for your continued support of WUMB, and I just wanted to take this minute to point out some events that are taking place.

It’s Time for Our Fall Fundraiser!

The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler. October’s here, and bringing with it this year’s Fall Fundraiser! Between Friday, October 13 and Monday, October 23 we will be live in the studio every day asking for your help in supporting WUMB and the programming you rely on throughout the year. Listener contributions make up more than half of our operating budget, and so your participation in our fundraisers is critical. Read More…

Welcome Back!

I’d like to take a second to welcome everybody back to “reality” now that Summer is gone for all intents and purposes.  It was a very busy Summer for us at WUMB for lots of reasons, but the one thing I can assure you is that we have some exciting Events and Programming to share with you.

August and Beyond…!

I simply can’t believe how fast time flies, and how we’re already into the month of August here at WUMB.  I hope you’re enjoying Summer and that it’s not going by too fast!  A couple of notes from the desk of the Program Director:

I wanted to make sure you get an invite to see Will Dailey performing in Martha’s Vineyard on September 23rd.  Keep a watch out on the air, through our website and social media on how to sign up.  This will be a completely free show for Members and Non-Members on the Island…just a way for us to say thanks!

Producer Spotlight with Jess Phaneuf

Jess has been focusing on a different producer each week on the Producer Spotlight. Listen in as she talks about the producer of the week and plays something they’ve worked on. On Fridays it’s an entire set of music to wrap up the feature. For example, the month of June was focused on regional producers like Zachariah Hickman, Lorne Entress and Crit Harmon.  Read More…

“The Family Business,” This Month on The Morning Show!

One of the obligations of family can be carrying on the family business when the patriarch or matriarch is unable to continue the work they built their life around. Read More…

Find “the Roots of Roots Music” on Folk Tales!

Scott Alarik continues to bring you the stories behind the music on Folk Tales.  This month you’ll learn about The Newport Folk Festival and its glories, myths, and controversies. Scott will also feature Utah Phillips, the songwriter-raconteur who helped rebuild folk music.  He’ll take you into the life and career of Judy Collins, the ’60s star who expanded the frontiers of folk and pop.  And he’ll end the month with Folkways Records, the stubborn little label that ignited the revival––and the indie music industry.

So don’t miss Folk Tales, Saturdays at noon and rebroadcast on Fridays at 5:00am!

NEW – Lunchtime Requests on WUMB!

With Jess Phaneuf moving to the mid-day shift, she’ll continue with the 10 o’clock Coffee Break, sharing something different, mostly new music, each morning. She’ll also bring her Producer Spotlight feature to the 11 o’clock hour. And this month she’ll debut a brand new feature for mid-days – Lunchtime Requests during the 12 o’clock hour… feel free to email, call (800-573-2100), Facebook or tweet (@WUMBradio) the songs you’d like to hear and Jess could play them mid-day on WUMB!
