If We Make It Through December    

Well it’s almost that time!  Depending on the type of procrastinator you are you’ve either got your shopping started, you’re all finished, or…you haven’t started yet.  I’m somewhere in between.  In any case I hope this message is finding you well!  It’s hard to believe we’re at the point where another year is about to start.  I want to take a moment to thank you for supporting WUMB in whatever way you have over this past year.  We’ve had so many generous folk make donations over the year; while some have donated cars, some have volunteered their time, while others have simply tuned into the radio station.  Whatever role you’ve played, I want to thank you for listening and believing enough in this radio station to support it!

We’ve got some very big plans in store for 2018.  So with that…thank you once again for another year of continued support, and I look forward to another year of musical discovery with you!

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.

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…
