Programming Notes

Stuffed, yet ready for more

Well, WAMC-land, I’ve already been working on my stuffing recipe (carb count be damned!), and I, for one, can’t wait to spend some long overdue time with my family, baking and catching up. Make sure you tune in on Thanksgiving and ‘ThanksFriday’ because we’ll have some great programs to listen to while you’re cooking your tofurky or turduken and heating up those leftovers.

A candid conversation about personal finance.

Well, the mums and foliage are giving us that last shock of color before we enter the winter doldrums and what better way to celebrate the turning of the seasons than getting out of our homes to enjoy it. And boy, do I have an event for you to come to – and the best part is that it’s FREE!

A celebration of Labor Day

I’m sad to say the summer has come to an end - the kids have tucked away their bikes and kick balls and gathered together their school supplies. Of course for us adults, it’s the same old routine. So, to break up the monotony and celebrate the people who have worked hard to make our world amazing, we have some great programming on Labor Day (September 7th, in case you were wondering.)

Music of the Berkshires

Well, WAMC’ers, even though the dog days of August are upon us, it doesn’t mean we can’t have some outdoor fun. We have nine more live Tanglewood broadcasts, and they are not to be missed.

Ahoy WAMC-land!

We’re finally getting the hot summers we’re used to and we have some great programming coming up this month that you can listen to while you’re on the road, gardening or barbequing, or just puttering around the house.

Summer is finally here! The sweet smell of lilacs is wafting through the neighborhoods, the cardinals and grackles are calling for their mates, and we are planning our vacations. Now, here’s the best part -- you can take us with you wherever you go! Technology is a grand thing… we’re no longer bound to having to lose our favorite station once we leave our homes. All you have to do is plug in your smart phones and bam! WAMC is right there with you.

Remembering Our Country’s Heroes

May is not only the month that leads us into summer, but a time to pay tribute to those who have fought valiantly for our country and freedom. Yes, we should remember these people every day, of course, but we make a special effort on Memorial Day. So on May 25th, Memorial Day, we’ll be bringing you stories of people who have served, and, in some cases, made the ultimate sacrifice for us. I hope their stories will stay with you and that you will share them with others.

Lives Lost & Saved

Okay, so maybe the weather didn’t get the memo that spring technically began on March 20th, but that hasn’t stopped April from coming, and hopefully some snow drops and crocus will follow. This month we have a sound-rich array of specials to celebrate Passover and commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Hear Me Roar!

Greetings and salutations, WAMC Land. It’s the time of year that we groan when we see the white stuff falling from the skies, the negative temperatures make us feel like 20° is a day in Hawai’i, and nothing is better than hunkering down in the house with a cup of tea. Well, we have a great month of specials and events to keep you company and warm you up.

A Celebration of America’s History

February is here and so is our winter Fund Drive. Now is the time to let us know which shows you love and which ones you’re not all that fond of. Whether you call in your pledge or make it on line, we do read every comment that you make as well as take note of your favorite programs. Your comments help us see what you’re most interested in so don’t be shy, take those extra seconds to help us better serve you!
