Fall Fundraising Drive  

It is one of those few times during the year when we ask our listeners to pitch in and support our mission here at Fine Arts Radio.  From October 17 to 25 we will be on air from time to time appealing to you for your financial support to keep us broadcasting the best of the best. We are unique in southern New England and we can't keep the music going without you! 

WMNR Streaming on Demand

As we've shared in the past, Will Duchon of Friday Evening Classics offers his programs The Night Café and Words & Music to be heard on the internet as streaming on demand, as does H. William Stine of Turntable for One.  This month we're pleased to tell you that Garrett Stack of Broadway Bound and American Jukebox is also archiving his programs after they air and making them available to listeners.  They join Jay Harris who put 19 of his One Great Song programs available. Haven't yet tried listening yet?  It's simply a recording of a radio program, archived on the internet, available for listening anytime you are online.  These three fantastic WMNR broadcasters all stream their programs at Public Radio Exchange, found at prx.org.

WMNR's Dianne Orlando

Our Membership Coordinator, Dianne Orlando joined the WMNR staff five years ago.  She processes listener contributions, assists Rosemarie Ryan with various tasks and writes up PSAs of concerts and events in our listening area.  You may recognize her name from Pledge Weeks; she is one of our on-air voices asking listeners for their support.  She is also the person to call if you'd like to volunteer during Pledge Week (203-268-9667).

"Working at WMNR means enjoying and learning from each broadcaster's unique taste andknowledge of classical music (and folk, jazz, Big Band, Broadway and classic rock n' roll).  I'm lucky to be in their midst."  Dianne enjoys sunset walks, time with her husband, two grown daughters and, of course, her Grand-dog, Beau.
