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!
Our Featured Artist for the week of February 27 is Canadian folk icon Lennie Gallant. Each morning at 7:45 AM we'll play a cut from Lennie's latest album, Live Acoustic At The Carleton and give away a copy AND a FREE pair of tickets to Lennie's show on Saturday, March 11 at 7 PM at 58 Main in Bangor.
