Word on sister Facebook site Fans of Folk Radio WUMB is that the upcoming fund drive may suffer from the loss of Barnes Newberry on Saturdays:
Word on the street is WUMB management, their bean counters and UMass Boston administrators are very worried about the upcoming funding drive because Highway 61 Revisited had been such a major component of individual funding and that former fans of the program have been informing management they have turned their backs on the station due to Barnes’ departure and the show slipping into the same mediocracy as the weekday programming.
The post says of WUMB’s “lamenting” Barnes’ “resignation”:
If you believe the WUMB spin that Barnes “decided to leave” I have some prime swamp land in Florida you may be interested in buying.
