Programming Notes en Programming Notes: July 2014 <p><em>Fireworks for your listening pleasure.</em></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Hello, </span>WAMC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Land!&nbsp; This month we have a great line-up for the </span>4<sup>th</sup><span style="line-height: 1.5;">, but before I get to that, we do have one change in programming. You may have noticed that on Friday 6/27, </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">Marketplace Money</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> was called </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">Marketplace Weekend</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;">. No, you weren’t going crazy… it’s supposed to be that way. The Marketplace crew has revamped the show for your listening pleasure and will deliver on their core content coverage area of business and economic news.&nbsp; They’ll be adding more technology coverage, a wrap-up and analysis of the week's "Numbers," interesting interviews and maintaining the strong and distinctive approach to personal finance and investing that has always been a hallmark of </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">Marketplace Money</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;">. </span>Lizzy<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> O’Leary will continue to host the program. Please note that now our Friday at </span>9PM<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> show will be the first airing, and the repeat will air Sunday mornings at </span>7AM<span style="line-height: 1.5;">.</span></p><p> Mon, 30 Jun 2014 18:24:12 +0000 Katie Britton 93789 at Programming Notes: June 2014 <p>Greetings and salutations, WAMC Land. By now the Fund Drive is well underway and the volunteers are manning the phones, awaiting your pledges. So to whet your palate for the other side of fund drive, here are some teasers about what’s coming in the latter half of the month.</p><p> Sun, 01 Jun 2014 07:28:07 +0000 Katie Britton 92807 at Programming Notes: May 2014 <p>Get out and enjoy the sun with WAMC.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The sun is shining, the daffodils are blooming, and it’s the perfect weather to get outdoors. Now, most people would think that this is counterintuitive. I mean, do we really want you to leave your cars or home and radios behind? Of course not! Did you know can take </span>WAMC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> with you on the go? That’s right, we can be where ever you are via your smartphone, tablet, and of course any of your listening devices. The </span>WAMC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> app has been updated for iPhones and androids and you can always stream </span>WAMC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>WAMC2<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> HD on-line, so you can always get to our website and listen while on the go as well.</span></p><p> Thu, 01 May 2014 12:19:15 +0000 Katie Britton 89444 at Programming Notes: April 2014 <p>‘Spring is here, spring is here,’ sang the bird…</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The vernal equinox has officially brought us into spring.&nbsp; The snow drops and crocus are poking through the ground, animals are coming out of hibernation, and April showers will wash away all the dreaded salt from our cars and roads.</span></p><p> Fri, 28 Mar 2014 20:19:09 +0000 Katie Britton 86946 at Programming Notes: March 2014 <div>March may be coming in like a lion, but keep your fingers crossed that the lambs will be arriving shortly and April showers will indeed bring May flowers. Is that enough modismos for you? (Obviously I’m getting a little punchy with all the snow.) This month, I’d like to highlight a few of our regular shows, as well as some specials we’ll have on tap.&nbsp;</div><p> Fri, 28 Feb 2014 21:29:36 +0000 Katie Britton 84901 at Programming Notes: February 2014 <p>Walk softly and carry a big radio.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Ahoy, </span>WAMC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Land! By now you know we’ve kicked off February with the winter fund drive, but like the frigid air, it will end and leave everyone all the happier for the great specials coming up this month.</span></p><p> Fri, 31 Jan 2014 18:23:10 +0000 Katie Britton 82991 at Programming Notes: January 2014 <p>Well, folks, it’s a new year with endless possibilities ahead. Some of us watched the ball drop in Times Square, some rang in 2014 with friends and family, while others (like myself) decided it’s too hard to stay up that late and greeted the new year sometime after sunrise.</p><p> Tue, 31 Dec 2013 18:47:32 +0000 Katie Britton 80950 at Programming Notes 12/1/13 <p>I love December. There’s nothing better than cuddling up on the couch with my favorite radio station on, grandma’s blanket wrapped around me, &nbsp;and a hot toddy in hand as I enjoy the crackle of the fire place (ok, it’s the Yule log on TV, but the bright side is that I don’t have to worry about chimney maintenance). To help you get into the holiday mood this month, we have several specials to put you at ease as the race for last minute shopping and New Year’s plans reach their pinnacle of stress.</p> Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:25:07 +0000 Katie Britton 81507 at Programming Notes 11/1/13 <p>Happy Thanksukkah!</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">That’s right folks we get a twofer this month with the awesome mash-up of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving. This means double the food and double the special programming.</span></p> Fri, 01 Nov 2013 14:45:31 +0000 Katie Britton 81508 at Programming Notes 10/1/13 <p>Hello WAMC Land. As some of you are reading this, we are in the throes of another glorious fund drive. Some of you have already pledged, and I know some of you are waiting for the right moment. Perhaps I can entice you to pledge sooner than later by dangling the programming carrot in front of you. Not a fan of carrots you say? Hmmm, well how about the biggest and most crispy slice of bacon? Yep, knew that would work.</p> Tue, 01 Oct 2013 14:47:27 +0000 Katie Britton 81509 at
