For quite a while now WMUK has offered listeners news and entertainment on Saturday mornings.  Soon, we will also be adding a touch of inspiration with the addition of the TED Radio Hour to WMUK-1.

Public radio listeners across the nation have embraced this new production from NPR that pulls together interesting and inspiring stories from TED events across the nation.  Guy Raz is the host.  We have been offering the show on WMUK-2 for the past few months where it has also been well received.

We are all familiar with the concept of “prime time” in the television world.  For decades the “prime” listening time for radio stations is when people are in their cars going to or coming home from work.  Over the years, “drive time” has come to be defined as 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and this is, logically, where stations will put their strongest programs.

More News on WMUK-2

Jun 12, 2013

  As you may have heard, NPR has made the difficult decision to wind down production of Talk of the Nation at the end of June.  In its place, NPR and WBUR in Boston are joining forces to expand and re-launch WBUR’s daily show Here & Now as a national news program for audiences in the middle of the day. It will be the first program owned and produced by a Member station that is built on a close, day-to-day editorial collaboration with NPR.

The popular music show American Routes will be moving to WMUK-1 starting Sunday, June 9.  Every week, Nick Spitzer brings listeners plenty of “roots” music but also explores the routes of influence that define contemporary American musical culture.  Learn more at the website: American Routes.

To make it a full afternoon of music we will be moving Alma Latina to 4 p.m. on Sundays.  WMUK’s repeat of A Prairie Home Companion will be heard at 8 p.m.

Starting Monday, June 3, evening listening will be a little different on WMUK.  Many current audience favorites will continue although they may be moving to a different time.  Echoes will continue to be heard in its full form weeknights on WMUK-2.  From the Top will continue to be heard Saturdays at noon.
