A Message From Joe Tiboni

The blues has a long and rich tradition and Southeast Michigan and WEMU have been part of that tradition for over 50 years. Clubs, festivals and radio have made our area a blues hotspot. Now a different kind of hotspot threatens all that history. Clubs are closed, Festivals cancelled and Covid 19 threatens blues on the radio, too.

As the pandemic interferes with our traditional fundraising methods, we try different ways to reach out. WEMU needs your support if the blues, jazz, roots, news and information are to continue to brighten and inform your days and evenings.
We are counting on you to help us meet and exceed our fiscal year fundraising goal! Support for WEMU comes from YOU and we need you now more than ever. Make your gift of support today by going to WEMU/dot/org, or calling 734-487-2229 during regular business hours.
Thank you!

Joe Tiboni’ s love affair with the blues began while he was a student at University High School in Ann Arbor in the 1960’s, listening to blues records along with the rock and roll of the period. The early Ann Arbor Blues Festivals and the healthy live music scene played a major role in cementing the relationship.
