If you are looking for some variety in radio programming, don't forget about 1340 WOUB-AM. We launched a new schedule in January 2013. It is now about three months old and if you haven't found it, we want to give you a gentle reminder.

Every weekday morning from 6-9 a.m. you can start your day with Public Radio Re-mix. It is a series of short stories delivered in a fast-paced format. Some are done by professionals and some are done by just ordinary people with extraordinary audio stories to tell.
