WMUB's distinguishing feature

I listened with great interest to the interview with [Cleve Callison] about the station on Forum [January 19th]. I personally have always thought that the major factor distinguishing WMUB from other area public stations is the hands-on, on-air opportunities it provides our undergraduate students interested in broadcasting -- not surprising given Miami's emphasis on high-quality undergraduate education generally. Thus the station seems to integrally fit into the U's guiding philosophy -- a perpsective I hope will not be lost on the administration as it ponders the financial circumstances of WMUB.

I cannot agree more that this is what sets WMUB apart from other public radio stations in the area. Glenn Danielson, my son, is one of those undergraduates who has worked at WMUB for the past four years, ever since he was a first year student. Although not a music major, he loves music, particularly jazz, and has been the primary host of "Almost Monday", having recorded over 20 shows. It has definitely been one of the best experiences in his college life and I would like to thank WMUB for giving him this rare opportunity.
