Tonight Blunt Youth Radio is fund-raising for our radio home, WMPG. Call 207-874-3000 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. EST, or donate online at And don’t forget to mention that Blunt sent you (so’s we get the credit).

As you know EVERY MONDAY NIGHT, high school age youth from the Portland area, both free and incarcerated, work together to create a live show from scratch, taking on topics that they care about, from their own perspectives. At Blunt, young people handle all aspects of show production: reporting, on-air hosting, selecting topics, locating guests, studio production, and broadcast engineering. Blunt also has an on-going outreach project with youth incarcerated by the State of Maine. Our program is the winner of thirteen regional and national broadcasting awards. Work produced by Blunt has aired on NPR, the BBC, Marketplace, and This American Life, among others. Keep the legacy going, help our home WMPG.
