WOJB Concert Series: BEN WEAVER w/ Special Guest Mike Munson, Friday, Dec. 12 at The Park Center
One special night. Two great artists. WOJB's Concert Series returns with BEN WEAVER with special guest Mike Munson, Friday, Dec 12 at Hayward's PARK CENTER, formerly The Park Theater, 15791 U.S. 63 downtown. Showtime is 7:30pm; doors open at 7:00pm.
To celebrate the release of his highly anticipated LP I Would Rather Be A Buffalo, Ben embarked on the IT'S ALL THE RIVER national tour, traveling by bicycle along the Mississippi River from the Twin Cities to New Orleans and curating stewardship-based performances at farms, bookstores, bike shops and small music venues. Through volunteerism projects paired with songs and poetry, Ben is aiming to connect audiences to the river and its surrounding land.
Rooted in blues, Mike Munson fills the stage with a fluid combination of skilled finger picking and masterful slide guitar. Influenced by the likes of John Lee Hooker and Mississippi John Hurt, his songs tell raw stories ofi work, travel and loss.
Since the summer of 2011 Mike has had a Sunday night residency at Ed’s (no name) Bar in Winona, MN. He performs throughout the region including regular appearances in Duluth, MN, LaCrosse, WI, and the Twin Cities. He has shared the stage with Charlie Parr and Joe and Vicki Price on multiple occasions, among others.

Eric Schubring's Interview with Kathleen Vinehout
October 30th, 2013
On Wednesday, October 30th, WOJB Public Affairs Director Eric Schubring conducted an interview with Wisconsin State Senator and prospective Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Vinehout , and FightingBob.com founder Ed Garvey. The interview came on the heels of a University of Marquette Law School poll showing Senator Vinehout polling as well against Republican Governor Scott Walker as announced Democratic candidate Mary Burke.
And while the statewide Wisconsin media mostly failed to report Vinehout's strong showing, Eric Schubring thought it was newsworthy and got her on the air.
