When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
From July 7 to August 11, 2014, WWUH will once again be broadcasting live the Monday Night Jazz series from Hartford's Bushnell Park. The series of free concerts, founded by Paul Brown and now produced by the Hartford Jazz Society, will be marking its 46th consecutive season. Regionally and internationally-recognized musicians regularly grace the stage of the park's Thomas D. Harris IV Pavillion. For event details, also see the Hartford Jazz Society's Monday Night Jazz website.
Thanks to our listeners, Marathon 2014 was a success. Thanks to everyone who called in a pledge or donated on line. WWUH is a unique experiment on community FM broadcasting and has been serving the area for over 45 years. We have an eclectic mix of programming, much of which is not available elsewhere, and all produced by volunteers. If you missed the opportunity to donate, and/or would like to add a brand new WWUH T-shirt to your collection, you can donate via our secure website.
