BLUE HILL/BANGOR - WERU-FM (89.9 FM in Blue Hill, 99.9 FM in Bangor and streaming online at is 25 years old! As part of the year-long celebration of the non-profit community radio station's first quarter century on the air, there will be a celebration concert '25 Years And Counting!' at The Grand in Ellsworth on Oct. 6, 2013 at 4 p.m.

The concert will feature some of Maine's best-known performers, including Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul, and Mary; singer-songwriter David Mallett; Maine Humorist Tim Sample; and folk musicians Bill Schubeck, Heidi Daub and Phil Norris. With the exception of David Mallett, all of the performers at the 25th anniversary celebration concert played live on the WERU airwaves during the station's first day on the air. This event is a benefit to support WERU-FM. Many WERU programmers, present and past, will be joining in the celebration, both from the stage and as part of the audience, and there are likely to be a few surprises as well. According to the radio station's General Manager Matt Murphy, "We are so grateful to our listeners and volunteers for over a quarter century of support, and this concert promises to be quite the celebration of that support for WERU's years of service to the community."
