WUMB-FM (91.9 FM) in Boston, Massachusetts) is the radio station of University of Massachusetts Boston, and broadcasts an adult album alternative music format known as "the WUMB music mix".[1] The station has received many awards for its previous folk music programming.[2]

WUMB can be heard throughout Massachusetts on repeater signals owned and operated by the University of Massachusetts throughout the state of Massachusetts. WUMB-FM can also be heard on the Internet and through the iTunes radio tuner service.

WFPB was originally a sister station of WKPE-FM until it was donated to UMass in 1999 by its then-owner, Grancam Communications.

WUMB-FM is noncommercial and operates as a United States-style public radio station, and also carries some NPR programming.

Each year since 1997, WUMB sponsored a live folk festival held at the University of Massachusetts, Boston called the Boston Folk Festival.[3]
