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.

Here we are into March with the prospect of Winter being in the rear view mirror and Spring just in front of us.  I hope you’re doing well, and thanks for taking the time to read the Program Guide for March. Read More…

New Additions to Programming

I hope this message finds you well as we’re already into February.  I wouldn’t say the Winter is “flying by” but the days are getting longer and sooner than later we’ll be into Spring.  Usually Spring ushers in significant change but WUMB has experienced that very same change over the last couple of months.  I’m sure you’ve heard about our new additions but if you haven’t I’ll give a brief overview: Read More…

New Year and New Programming!

Well here we are…we’ve made it to 2018!  Welcome to a New Year, and I hope your Holidays were pleasant!  We’ve been extremely busy over here at WUMB over the last few months and I wanted to start off the New Year with news…both good and bad. Read More…

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.
