Thread Name: Permathread for all these music camps
Subject: RE: Permathread for all these music camps
Hello, some of you are acquainted with me, but I'm a relative newbie
and I come here largely to find out stuff.
Occasionally I have something to share.
Not a music camper. Why did I come to this permathread? Because:
I had the car radio on and I heard a promotion on the air for
SAMW or the acoustic music camps, at different times of year, sponsored by the University of Massachusetts FM radio station.
The camp is held in the New Hampshire Lakes region at Geneva Point on Lake Winnipesaukee.
It is edifying to do a Mudcat-thread search on this subject. Pulled up this permathread, for one thing, and looked in vain for these summer programs.
Dick Pleasants founded the acoustic music camp in question,
he has been retired for over five years
and someone else from the radio station does it now.
I find that at the Mudcat, there were some intense conversations
about WUMB-FM some ten to fifteen years ago. Some of the members who talked about it are no longer with us.
Anyway I'm kind of surprised there is so little current about SAMW.
