Spirit of Winter in Midcoast Maine... Including WERU!

Every winter we like to remind people of this great short film by Chris Lehmann that he produced in 2013, Spirit of Winter in Midcoast Maine.  The film features WERU as an audio and community fixture of the region, a way to mark the segments of the day in a warm sounding way.  Thanks to Chris for including WERU in his film and we hope everyone takes a look!

From Conflict to Connection: March 21-22

Want to learn how to resolve conflicts more skillfully? How to be sensitive to others while still meeting your own needs? How to have easier and deeper relationships?

You can do all this and support WERU Community Radio on Saturday and Sunday March 21 - 22, 9:00-4:00 when Peggy Smith will offer an introductory workshop in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) called From Conflict to Connection: An Introduction to the Basics of Nonviolent Communication. The weekend-long training is a fundraiser for WERU and will be held at the Bagaduce Music Lending Library's gathering space at 49 South Street in Blue Hill.

This two-day fundraising workshop is a $140 value, but Peggy is offering it for whatever donation participants can afford. All proceeds after expenses go to WERU.

Preregistration at Open Communication is strongly recommended. For information, please contact Smith at 207-789-5299 or peggy@opencommunication.org. Read more »

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 »
