The Jazz In June Radiothon is coming up. It's our classic summertime fundraiser where WUMR asks for help from "The Jazz Lover Family" to keep the staff paid, the equipment state of the art, and to be sure that the station presents the best quality sound of jazz that is humanly possible.
U92 starts the week of Jazz in June on Sunday, June 15th, 2014 at 10 a.m. on-the-air, with the official kickoff at 6 p.m. at the New Daisy Theatre on Beale Street.
This event will be the annual McDowell Fund Concert featuring The Alvie Givhan Quintet. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show goes on until 8 p.m.
We are looking forward to a week of great music, fun, laughs, guests, and gifts to help U92 keep jazz alive and well. Keep listening, and get ready to make a pledge of support starting Sunday, June 15th.
