Thanks to listener support WERU finished 2017 on a very positive fundraising note. Let’s get 2018 off to a strong start too during our Winter Pledge Drive, which will take place from Saturday, February 24 to Saturday, March 3! Our goals are $15,000 and 100 New Members. All donations make a difference, big and small. Also, if you’d like to help out by volunteering answering the pledge phones during the week of the drive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Volunteer” in the subject line. Thanks in advance for a great Pledge Drive! Don’t forget, you can give anytime right here.
WERU Community Radio’s programming a lot depends on volunteer musical interests and passions, and in that department we sure have a lot of variety. That diversity means that we have occasional shifts in our schedule and we recently have had some such changes. We’ve got some new programs in the schedule and a few current shows moving around. We’ve also got a broadcaster’s voice returning to WERU after many years away and a brand new voice taking to the airwaves! We hope our listeners enjoy the new and relocated programs.
Featured Artist of the Week
Folk-rock act Chris Ross and the North is our “Featured Artist” this week. Each morning at 7:45 AM our volunteer disc jockey will play a cut from their 2015 album Young Once and will give away a FREE pair of tickets to see them on Friday, March 2nd at 8 PM. The show is at the 1932 Criterion Theatre (35 Cottage Street in Bar Harbor).
Who are the people who host music shows on WERU? They do all sorts of things and come from all sorts of backgrounds. One of them is Melisenda Ellis.
What do you do at WERU Community Radio?
Since 2010 I have hosted Wednesday’s On the Wing, a show of eclectic music of all kinds. Before that I co-hosted and hosted a number of overnight shows (Northern Journeys, Insomniac’s Mix, and Beyond the Veil) starting in February 2003.
