When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
Mixed Grille - Steve Theaker
Host: Steve Theaker
Fridays, 6:00am - 9:00am
Heading into his seventh broadcast year at WWUH, Steve Theaker is the Friday FM on Toast show host. He delivers a medley of acoustic, edgy, jazzy, swampy, bluesy, rootsy, rockin', protestin' contemporary folk; whisked with a dash of bluegrass, world and reggae music. Add some splashes of 60's rock, Celtic and a few Texas hombres to turn up the heat, and the end result is a program entitled Mixed Grille.
"It's a wonderfully eclectic mix of a little bit of this and a little bit of that," says Wednesday's Caterwaul show host Ed McKeon, a veteran of 20 years of folk radio. Listeners enjoy the upbeat and calming flavor of Steve's banter (even when the subject is serious), the long music sets, and his witty silliness.
So, have a cuppa tea at the Mixed Grille on Fridays and don't forget to use your gall-dang blinkuh! Please?
