Fred's WUMB Contemporary Folk web page


I have been listening to WUMB - U Mass Boston 's "Contemporary Folk" streaming radio the last week or so.
It's just music - no announcer, DJ or ads.  I like the mix of songs but it's hard to
describe so I made the "playlist" below (not complete, but a good sample).
The web browser based player displays the current and two preceding songs played in a box.

After listening a lot on Sat and off and on in the background as I'm at
my computer (about 10 hours total ??) I've heard some songs repeatedly but I have not
noticed frequent repeats. I've noticed "Copperline" maybe 3-4 times.


MN Public Radio's Radio Heartland has a similar service but somehow I have not listened to it much.
It does have one scheduled Dale Connelly Show at 6-9am  ( 2 hours repeated ar 11am). The show evolved from the
ong running MPR "Morning Show" (which Garrison Keillor hosted at one time).



WUMB playlist (partial) accumulated  2/20/09 - 2/25/09 by copy and pasting.
