WUMB February Program Guide

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!

Miss Tess Live At the Burren

Our most recent Third Thursday at the Burren was a homecoming show for Miss Tess, who spent many years based in the Boston area. She recently relocated to Nashville, where she and her band recorded a good portion of their latest album, Baby We All Know.

It was another exciting night of live radio, and we had the biggest turnout yet with a sold out back room. Tommy McCarthy, owner of the Burren, was in the house too, and he was happy to see the success of our collaboration!

Damn Tall Buildings play our next Third Thursday, on January 19th! Live broadcast begins at 6pm, show starts at 7:30pm.
