WUSM-FM (88.5 fm) broadcasts from the Hattiesburg campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. WUSM celebrates American roots music with a strong Mississippi influence from a 60,000 plus music library. WUSM’s programming can be found streaming on the Internet at www.SouthernMissRadio.com. (WUSM Website 2014)
“Roots” music is music that is considered to be
pure Americana. Roots music is defined by its local, regional, and cultural
values. Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Folk, Country, Adult Alternative, and
Jazz define WUSM, and our roots heritage. Even though roots music varies from
region to region throughout the entire United States, artists from Mississippi
have proven over the years that we are on the musical forefront in several of
the leading formats, and genres. WUSM defines Roots Radio because they have
continued to represent our traditions, beliefs and cultural values, even while
operating with a budget between slim to none. The station at USM promotes and
supports local artists, and music, as well as local businesses. Without local
support and community leaders like WUSM, the coverage area would just be
another blip in bland radio. WUSM's coverage area serves the surrounding Pine Belt community. It is
the responsibility at SG Productions to aid WUSM in a crowdfunding campaign in
order to raise awareness of the station in the Hub City/Pine Belt Region. However, to continue to
operate, WUSM requires your help and support. WUSM exists through the generosity
of its listeners. By sponsoring WUSM and pledging a small generous donation,
you are helping acquire crucial broadcasting equipment, licensing, utilities
while allowing WUSM to move past the limitations and confines of a being a
community radio station located in the heart of campus.
