In light of the unprecedented coronavirus situation, WUMR 91.7 will discontinue broadcast operations before 4/1/2020. In the very near future, we look forward to resuming broadcasting through the new partnership between the University of Memphis, Crosstown Concourse and the Daily Memphian.
We are excited to build upon WUMR's outstanding legacy as we join forces to expand the station's music, culture and news content. We want to thank everyone who has contributed to the station since its inception in 1974 and will keep you informed about developments, as we strive to create further opportunities for University of Memphis students and the wider community to engage with the station.
The Feature CD of the Week is Bob Baldwin's "Henna." His 31st offering is a truly natural and organic feeling. The inspiration of the project is from his favorite contemporary pianists, George Duke and Joe Sample.
UofM President M. David Rudd said in a press release, "it is with much anticipated excitement that our campus radio station, WUMR, will be joining forces with Crosstown Concourse and The Daily Memphian."
