A major goal of WERU Community Radio is to be a multigenerational community of listeners, supporters and volunteers. We seek to involve and serve all kinds of people. That’s why we are conducting a survey for listeners and volunteers of all ages, and we hope that you will take some time to participate. The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. We are accepting submissions now through November 15th. Let us know what you think about WERU, present and future! Thanks!
Not only can you listen to WERU to live and recorded shows on your phone with our app, now you can easily see what song is playing at the very moment it is broadcast! Just search for WERU in your favorite app store (App Store for iPhones and Google Play for Android phones). Give it a try – we hope you enjoy it!
Community Wellness Watch, a new public health information project of WERU, includes a series of brief recorded announcements and hour-long programs, the second of which aired on the September 29 edition of the program. It featured a conversation with local professionals who provide housing for children and families in need. CWW is produced by WERU intern Emma Weiss, with financial support from the Maine Community Foundation. The CWW logo was designed by Shane Weiss.
Guests on this program included Travis Bryant, Executive Director of Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine Inc. & The Kinship Program, Robin Chamberlain, director of Safe Families for Children in Maine, and Tracey Hair, Executive Director of H.O.M.E. Inc. Listen to the recording of this program!
WERU has a new on-demand playback system which allows you to listen to show recordings (for two weeks after they air) and view the playlists (for music shows) in the same place, instead of having to go to two different locations on our website. Please email [email protected] if you have any comments or questions about the new system. Thanks for listening to WERU! See below for instructions.
