WUMB November Program Guide

In the News

From the Desk of the Programming Director

Thank you!

I wanted to take a quick moment and truly thank each of you who took the time to donate during our recent Fall Member Drive. I’m continuously amazed at the number of listeners who in turn support the station. You hear lots of other Public Radio stations talk about Listener Support and how crucial it is…but I assure you it’s the most important thing at WUMB. All we can say is that we’re humbled, and thank you once again! Read More…

Greg Klyma 3rd Thursday!

Join us for WUMB’s next 3rd Thursday Concert at the Burren in Davis Square, Somerville on 11/15! The guest artist this month is Buffalo, NY native Greg Klyma. Greg has called Somerville home for over a decade, but has logged enough miles on the road as a touring musician to have traveled to the moon and back. All of that touring has allowed Greg to build up on of the deepest songbooks of any working musician I can think of, both his own songs and covers. I estimate he knows north of 1,000 songs by heart on guitar, piano, mandolin and harmonica. Read More…

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. Read More…

Thanks, Perry!

I wanted to take a moment to say thanks to Perry Persoff for all he’s done for WUMB. After September Perry will be setting sail back to the West Coast permanently. Truth be told I’ve been working with Perry for many years. Before coming to WUMB I first met Perry at my first job in radio. Read More…

The Circle Comes Around

WUMB’s 3rd Thursday At The Burren live concert broadcast for August wraps up Year Two of the series.  And what a way to do it.  We’ve got Dennis Brennan. Read More…

Same Show….New Name!

I don’t think there’s a day that goes by that I don’t receive some sort of interesting note/email/phone call from a Listener or a Member discussing various topics of WUMB. I did however receive a highly unusual message last week with “cease and desist” in the title of the email. With heightened curiosity I opened the note to be informed that WUMB needs to change the name of Acoustic Sunrise. Read More…

It’s Summer!

I usually start these blogs off with a quick “where is the time going” kind of rant and this month is no exception. As I’m writing you we’re gearing up for the 4th of July, the kids are out of school, and lazy hazy days ahead (not really lazy, who are we kidding!?).  I hope this is finding you well…here are some notes as we head into July.

With a few days up in the mid-80s it’s finally starting to feel like Spring/Summer as we head into June!  I hope this message is finding you well.  Here’s some info to pass along…. Read More…

A Busy May and Beyond!

Is it Spring yet????  I hope May is finding you well, as Spring is “sort of” here in New England and beyond.  Per usual, as most businesses find ways to slow down for Summer, we’re just starting to launch what will be a fairly busy Spring/Summer for WUMB.  Read More…

It’s Finally Spring!!

The running theme throughout our most recent Spring Fundraiser (both on and off the air) was that we should call it the “March Fundraiser” because of course there was simply nothing “Spring” about it!  Here we are, though!  We have finally made it to April and while I’m writing this with massive snow piles still sitting in front of my house…they are getting smaller!  Spring is indeed here, the Red Sox are back and all will be right with New England sooner than later.
