Walter Mayo is a guest host at WWUH.
I was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, and came to Hartford in 1968. I practiced law here and am now retired. My father and mother were both musical, and I remember listening to the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts and the Bell Telephone Hour on the radio. I played drums and trumpet in high school, and picked up bass (upright) for band gigs in college. I got into radio with WPRB at Princeton, where I had a jazz show. I’ve been singing madrigals in a group with Dave Buddington at the Hartford Conservatory for many years, and in 2003 he asked me if I would share a Wednesday Evening Classics slot at WWUH. We did so for three years. He’s still a regular, and I’m an occasional pinch-hitter for the Bach jocks. WWUH is unique. I have great admiration for the technical knowledge of the staff, the musical depth of the program hosts, and the enthusiasm of everyone connected with the station. It does what it does so well! I’m proud to be a part of it.
