The recently-renovated 101.5 UMFM will swing open their doors to listeners on June 6.

The campus and community radio station at the University of Manitoba will host a series of open houses to allow the public to tour its new state-of-the-art broadcast facilities and live band recording room.

The first open house, as mentioned, will be next Monday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Show hosts are planning live performances by local artists, prize giveaways and special guest hosts.

“The renovations are a huge boost for the station and we’re excited to show off our new digs”, station manager Jared McKetiak said. “The upgrades position UMFM to create an even better radio experience to listeners on campus and in the wider Winnipeg community.”

The second open house will be held Wednesday, June 8 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., followed by Saturday, June 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

UMFM is located on the third floor of University Centre on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus.
