WUOT's Open House is Tuesday, Aug. 13, 4-7 p.m.!

Jul 31, 2013

Maggie Barta gets her arm painted with a Thistle and Shamrock theme as Bailey Callaghan, the Travis girls and Gene Dunaway look on.

  Come one, come all! Join us for our annual open house! You’ll get to meet staff, tour the station, hear Todd Steed and Melony Dodson perform, play games and more.

 You welcome WUOT into your home whenever you turn on 91.9 FM, and we want to welcome you into our studios. Our open house is a fun way for you to spend some time with us and see the radio station. Join us for a few minutes or stay the entire time. Feel free to invite a fellow public radio fan…or two or three!
