The Lincoln Library Concert

Sundays 6:00-7:00 a.m.

The Lincoln Library Concert, Jim promotes the classical music and new books anyone can find at Lincoln Library and through its interlibrary services.

The Lincoln Library Concert is unique because Jim makes his musical selections based on a theme. The themes of his show may feature a particular composer, an era or style of composition, a genre, or music that may be associated with a holiday.The show has been broadcast since WUIS' first week on the air in 1975. Jim is a volunteer with WUIS; he was encouraged to start doing this show due to his love of music. Interestingly, he had no experience in radio when he began.
