Volunteer Spotlight: Jay Peterson

We asked Jay Peterson a number of questions so that listeners can get to know him a bit better. Jay is the engaging and knowledgeable host of our Friday afternoon, 2:00-4:00 program on WERU, The Rhythm Ranch.  Here’s what he had to say for himself:

“I moved to Maine in the winter of 2002, and the family followed in March. I started at WERU in the fall of '02 as part of the rotation on the Saturday Morning Coffeehouse, then moved into the Come Sunday rotation, and then to The Rhythm Ranch is '05 or so. I think I have been on the air on almost every day of the week! February 6 marked the 500th edition of The Rhythm Ranch."   Read more »
