Pledge-O-Rama Tax Receipt Update!
on January 9,2017 by jared

Just a heads up that if you contributed to UMFM, chose the tax receipt as your option and paid for your pledge during the 2016 calendar year that your tax receipt will be mailed out at the beginning of next week (January 16th/17th, 2017) and should be arriving for you shortly thereafter, depending on how the ol' crow flies.

If you don't see anything from us by the end of the month, and are expecting a tax receipt, please feel free to get in touch ASAP so that the issue can be resolved.

Cheers, and thanks again for your support!

Happy Holidays To All!
on December 16,2016 by jared

With the holiday season now in full swing, the staff and volunteers at UMFM would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours nothing but the best tidings of the season! 

Once again, we need to thank you for your support during 2016 which was historical year for UMFM that saw us execute our most successful Pledge-O-Rama yet, recording and posting some of our most amazing live sessions to date, and of course continuing to produce countless hours of quality radio programming, along the way introducing some great new programs to our grid for your listening enjoyment. 

Starting on December 22nd at 6PM, we'll be moving into holiday programming mode, resuming normal programming once again starting January 3rd.  During this time, some of your favorite shows will be doing special extended episodes, some will pre-record and some will take some well deserved time off.  Our offices will also be closed for those 2 weeks, but should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via the normal channels

Until then, enjoy some quality time with your family and friends and most importantly, be safe and kind to one another -- we can't wait to see you all in 2017!  We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to share with our, our loyal friends and listeners!
