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.
New World Notes - Decade War
This week on New World Notes: radio program #269, April 30, 2013, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst commemorates the tenth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2013 by airing selections from Decade War--Skidmark Bob's 2011 audio collage on the horrors and futility of the US's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We'll hear an engaging mix of Hollywood film clips, TV news, new and old music--and a good British documentary about the experiences of soldiers, in a doomed outpost in Afghanistan, slowly being wiped out by the Taliban.
Musical highlights include a stunning update of Country Joe's "Feels Like I'm Fixin' to Die"--plus original (1965) and punk-rock versions of "Eve of Destruction."
Skidmark Bob produces the radio show and podcast, PoP dEFECT RADIO. Visit this site for more info and download links.
