Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With seven albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, and a 2003 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time.

Dear WPM Members and Listeners --

Thank you for your dedication and support for Wyoming Public Media!  You often hear us say that YOU, the individual, are our most stable source of revenue.  I can't stress this point enough.  While state and federal funding reacts to the economy, your individual support remains true.

There Is No Mountain is a reference to a Zen koan, a lyric from a Donovan song, and an Americana/psych-pop duo known for its catchy off-kilter sonic adventures. The Portland, Oregon based band are married couple Kali Giaritta and Matt Harmon. African rhythms, jazz harmonies, classical arrangements, theatrical melodies, and psychedelic sounds are all a part of There Is No Mountain.

Music is just the thing to perk up your day! Single Shot Live will bring you one song recorded live at the WPM studios and the artist’s comments about the song, plus a slide-show of the performance. If you know a musician or group that you’d like to hear (and see), let us know. And if you’re a musician or group that would like to be featured, that’s right, let us know.

Sonnet: “Dispatches from the Western Front”

Feb 1, 2013

In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, University of Wyoming student Zack Anderson began advertising his services around campus. The English and French major is offering customized sonnets for a fee. Wyoming Public Media requested that Anderson write a love poem… for us.

Here, nigh the end of our postmodern age,

the news is bred on free-range server farms

and in the brains of citizenry rage

incertitude, distress, ennui, alarm,

complacency.  These bitter villains leach

the human spirit from our cynic scene.

Wyoming Public Media welcomed Bert DeVroey, from Belgian Public Radio VRT, who was traveling in the US to cover the presidential elections.  He dropped in to WPM to see first-hand how a state network operates and how it deals with funding issues and to visit with General Manager Christina Kuzmych.

Wyoming Public Media isn’t just about broadcasting!  We also like to educate kids about radio, production, announcing, and everything that goes into making public radio unique.   Recently the students from Albin Elementary School paid us a visit, and got some tips from one of the nation’s top news directors, Bob Beck.
