This Friday’s premier biopic of the First Lady of the American Songbook held in conjunction with the Portland Museum of Art and WMPG’s JAM (Jazz at the Movies): will be available online by going to Portland Museum of Art. Ella Fitzgerald was a 15 year-old street kid when she won a talent contest in 1934 at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. Within months she was a star. Ella: Just One of Those Things follows her extraordinary journey over six decades as her sublime voice transforms the tragedies of her own life and the troubles of her times into joy.

How-to use Audacity to record a show at home

WMPG on the air with socially distant radio…

WMPG is on the air, but we’ve sent our wonderful volunteers home to be socially distant and safe. To keep the great sounds coming to you, we are broadcasting programs from our archives, and trying to sync these programs with the DJs who would be on the air if we were broadcasting live. And you know what? This programming is SO good… We are often reminded that WMPG has some of the best programming in radio, and hearing these shows again really brings it home.
