Taylor DanielAttention jazz lovers! It is nearly time for "The Jazz In June Radiothon" here at U92. This is WUMR's 40th anniversary year as the University of Memphis radio station, and that is something very special.

It is also special that "The Jazz Lover" has maintained its mission to provide the "foot-in-the-door" training for future broadcasters, while continuing to present America's own original musical art form – jazz – to the most diverse of all radio audiences.

Beginning on Sunday, June 23rd, 2013 at 10 a.m., U92 will ask for support in keeping WUMR on the airwaves in Memphis and the Mid-South, and streaming worldwide. It is going to be a week of fun and music, and we want listeners to be a part of it.

Remember, you are the "U" in U92.

In addition, the formal kick off concert starts at 6 p.m. in the Black Box at the Germantown Performing Arts Center. This year's artist is up and coming Memphis jazz vocalist Taylor Daniel.

His album Color of You has received airplay on U92 since its release late last year, and he was our choice to entertain guests at this very important fundraiser.

Tickets are available at the GPAC box office at 1801 Exeter Road in Germantown, and online on their website. For more information about the concert, please contact (901) 678-2560 or (901) 751-7500.
