WERU Volunteer, Mike Joyce, has passed away. Mike was one of the iconic, original volunteers in 1988 and continued to serve the community as a music programmer until the time of his death. He was well known and loved as the host of the Barefoot Blues Hour music show and co-host of the public affairs program BoatTalk. Mike was a unique personality who loved to talk, be it having a chat or talking about “stuff” or boats on his radio shows. He cared deeply about people and the radio station. Thank you, Mike, for all you have done for WERU and our listeners. (Details on a program paying tribute to Mike or a celebration of his life are not yet available.)
