Events Stories

June 5: Blue Hen 5K

University of Delaware graduates planning to attend Alumni Weekend are encouraged to register for the annual Blue Hen 5K walk and run, which will be held Sunday morning, June 5.

June 6-9: Food and culture series

The 20th annual June Lecture Series at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UD in Wilmington will be held June 6-9. Titled 'June a la Carte,' this year's program focuses on great political documents, feminism, world politics and a Newark cuisine sampler.

The initial show was an extension of the Jon and Steve in the Morning program.

The initial playlist contained mostly Christmas music, though subsequent years have broadened the program to air a variety of holiday tunes.

Listeners can expect to hear a combination of traditional winter holiday favorites, novelty recordings, and a wide range of selections rarely heard elsewhere on the air.

For many years, Kramarck presented this special as a one-man holiday show. The program recently expanded into a family affair with Kramarck’s children, Quinton and Jillian, serving as guest disc jockeys.

“As the kids have grown, some might say that dad has been relegated to a sidekick role,” Kramarck joked.

The first hour of this year’s program will feature holiday broadcasts from legends Jack Benny and Jean Shepherd, with music to follow for the remainder of the show. 

Listeners can tune in at 91.3FM or online.
