BackStory: Thanksgiving Special

Thursday at 3pm, WMRA presented a special episode of BackStory... American as Pumpkin Pie: A History of Thanksgiving.

When we sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, we think we know what we’re commemorating. But if an actual Pilgrim were to attend your Thanksgiving, chances are he’d be stunned by what he saw there.

Farmville Audio Restored

Longwood University is in the process of physically moving the WMLU studio to a new location, and as a result, we were off-the-air in Farmville (91.3fm) for most of the morning. At this point our signal has been restored.

New Rhythm For Morning Edition

The New Morning Edition Clock - In Effect Beginning November 17, 2014

Did you know that every public radio program has a clock? Broadcast clocks are set templates that stations like ours use to track the timing of a show's stories and interviews, newscasts, and funding credits each day.

NPR has changed  a few of their show clocks, and the most obvious change in timing affects Morning Edition. The purpose is to help align the placement of new headlines and stories with the way people listen to radio today.  The new clock also provides WMRA with more flexibility to include the local news and info that's important to you.
