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 close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.

Although it's a little hard to make out, that's me at the foot of the five story pagoda temple of Nyatpola at Bhaktapur, Nepal. I am wearing my gray WWUH tee shirt from 1992 or '93? I was blessed with the opportunity to visit nepal for part of October and November of last year to work with Nepali and Tibetan shamans and traditional healers. I brought along several UH tee shirts but this one usually got the most comments, especially from Europeans I met who thought that a radio station with such a clever tee shirt had to be outstanding. I could only agree.
Thanks for all the wonderful music and programming that you provide for our community.
Long time listener and patron,
Richard of East Hartford.
