89.1 WEMU

After several requests from station supporters to give The Roots Music Project more time on the 89.1 WEMU airwaves, management has decided to move the program to a new time and expand it from two hours to three.  Starting Saturday, July 19, the popular show and its host, Jeremy Baldwin, can be heard starting at 4:00pm.

 "Jeremy has a great following in this community," said Patrick Campion, WEMU Program Director. "Moving the program to a little later time on Saturday opens it up to an even larger potential audience and lets us more easily expand it to an additional hour.  This also gives us a chance to move some other local programs around that pair up well with The Roots Music Project."

From Memphis To Motown and host Wendy Wright will move from 7:00pm Sunday to 1:00pm Saturday.

"Wendy's blues selections are a great lead in to the rest of our new Saturday lineup," Campion continues. "Again, this gives her an opportunity to be exposed to a new and wider audience with a program we believe has a lot of potential for growth."

This Is It

Mar 21, 2014

Dear WEMU Friends:    This is it.  The last day of  WEMU's Spring Pledge Drive.  More than $140,000 has been pledged since March 13; if yours was among them, please accept our grateful thanks.  If you have not yet made your gift to WEMU, please do so now to help us raise the last $58,000.

 It will take a record day to meet that last chunk of our goal but we have been here before and we have been successful.
