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."
