Broadcasting from the Scott J. Bacherman Broadcast Center


Once a year, WMUA interrupts our regular broadcast of public affairs, UMass Sports and lots of strange and beautiful music, to invite listeners to phone in and contribute to the dynamic radio voice of the University of Massachusetts.

WMUA, licensed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, is a student and community radio station, in continuous operation on campus for over 65 years. We broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to an audience within 20 miles of Amherst, and stream our signal via our web site ( WMUA is one of the largest student organizations on campus, with an annual budget in excess of $100,000 (more than half of it raised through individual donations, business underwriting and other fundraising.) The money we raise will allow us to buy and repair equipment and further improve our service to the campus and Pioneer Valley.

WMUA employs 14 student department directors and relies on approximately 75 volunteers to produce its award-winning programming and support our administrative effort.

Tax-deductible pledges of support will be thanked with t-shirts, concert tickets, compact discs and other gifts.

WMUA is a complex facility, in that it has to support both the latest, as well as the oldest sound technologies used, in order to bring you our unique programming. While it is well equipped for analog audio testing, WMUA needs digital audio testing equipment as well as computer networking test gear.

The special Fund Drive phone number is 413-577-3000.
