The General Store, heard every Sunday 1-2 p.m. on WERU, is an engaging mix of great music and entertaining storylines, sort of like a happy soap opera with an awesome sound track. The program was recently featured in a Bangor Daily News article by Abigail Curtis of the BDN staff.
"Every week, radio listeners around Maine and beyond find their coziest chairs and settle in for an hourlong visit to Angel’s Notch, a make-believe hamlet tucked into the mountains on the border of Maine and Canada.
But Angel’s Notch really exists somewhere else entirely: the fertile imagination of Annie Stillwater Gray, who has been producing The General Store radio show with her husband, Andy Wendell, out of their home in Solon since the spring of 2000." Read more »
Funding for community radio, public radio, public television and more are once again under threat in Washington and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, from which WERU receives 25% of our budget, could be eliminated. You can help prevent that from happening by taking action now using the links below. Thank you!
The honky-tonk excellence of the Sweetback Sisters will be our Featured Artist focus for the week of February 20-24. They will be sharing the bill with old-time country artists Girls, Guns & Glory in concert at the Strand Theatre in Rockland on Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 PM.
Each morning our programmers will play a cut from the Sweetback Sisters Bulldog album at 7:45 and then give away to a lucky winner a FREE pair tickets to see the show. So tune in for a modern take on the golden age of country music. And maybe win some tix! Read more »
