ATHENS, OH – For many in our region, Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without Bluegrass on WOUB.  In order to celebrate the long-running WOUB Bluegrass program, D 28 + 5, and the new 24/7 D 28 + 5 livestream – WOUB will hold a one-day membership drive on Sunday, July 30.

“Bluegrass is the music of Appalachia. Through D 28 + 5, WOUB has been able to share that music with the people in our region,” said WOUB Director of Radio Rusty Smith. “But local music programs like this need the support of its listeners to continue and that’s why we are asking those who love the program to make a donation to WOUB on Sunday, July 30.”
