Issues of the Environment
Weekly radio show that airs each Wednesday at 8:20am.

The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:20am.
- Friday, March 28: Finally! It’s time for our migrating birds to return, such as chimney swifts, which come here all the way from South America to raise their young. Their numbers have gone down 65% in the last 50 years. In the March installment of WEMU’s “The Green Room,” Barbara Lucas explores the current and future status of our local chimney swifts.
