bronzewound radio


Bronzewound is the Bluegrass music radio show on Community Radio, WERU-FM, 89.9 Blue Hill, Maine.  And we're also webcasting at www.weru.org.  Be sure to tune in wherever you are.  Bronzewound is on every Thursday evening from 8PM to 10PM, Eastern Time.

If you can't listen at that time, go to the program schedule, find and click on Bronzewound.  There you can choose "Listen To Previous" and you can listen to either of the last two shows.

WERU has commenced work on a major expansion of our music library.  We have built shelves on every available wall space on the main floor of our building, so now we are expanding into the basement.

The first three photos in the linked photo gallery will show you a small portion of our current library. The following photos will show you the basement, and the progression of the library expansion, starting with what it looked like before it was cleaned out of years of accumulated stuff.

WERU Music Library Expansion Project

The first new shelves to be built in the basement are to accommodate two recent bequests to WERU of over 500 LPs.  These will be joining the rest of our LP collection that was already in the basement.

I will be adding progression photos as the construction continues.

Community businesses that have contributed to the project are:

Barter Lumber Company, Deer Isle
Stewart Construction Company, Deer Isle
Peter Beerits, Deer Isle  http://www.nervousnellies.com/sculptures
Viking Lumber, Belfast  http://www.vikinglumber.com/
Gillman Electric Supply Company, Ellsworth

Many thanks to these businesses for their support of WERU> 


Paul Anderson began producing Bronzewound on WERU the same week that the station began broadcasting in May of 1988. When Paul's job moved him out of the area in 1995, David Manski stepped in. David works for the National Park Service and had been doing a Bluegrass radio show on Cape Cod. He then became based at Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine.

Darwin Davidson had been doing some musician interviews on Bronzewound with both Paul and David. David encouraged him to do more, and in November 1997 Darwin began co-hosting the show with David.

The WERU logo at the top of this page is another link to the WERU website where you will find other information about the station. I hope you will consider joining over 1500 other lovers of Community Radio and help support WERU.
