University of Hartford

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.

Walter Mayo

I was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, and came to Hartford in 1968. I practiced law here and am now retired. My father and mother were both musical, and I remember listening to the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts and the Bell Telephone Hour on the radio. I played drums and trumpet in high school, and picked up bass (upright) for band gigs in college. I got into radio with WPRB at Princeton, where I had a jazz show. I’ve been singing madrigals in a group with Dave Buddington at the Hartford Conservatory for many years, and in 2003 he asked me if I would share a Wednesday Evening Classics slot at WWUH. We did so for three years. He’s still a regular, and I’m an occasional pinch-hitter for the Bach jocks. WWUH is unique. I have great admiration for the technical knowledge of the staff, the musical depth of the program hosts, and the enthusiasm of everyone connected with the station. It does what it does so well! I’m proud to be a part of it.
