Judy Wagley

Host, Afternoon Classical Music

Judy is the newest addition to WCMU, joining the staff in December 2018. As producer and host of “Afternoon Classical Music,” she wants to share her life-long love of classical music with listeners, and have some fun along the way! She is also the producer of “Central Stage.”

Judy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Music History, and has worked at public and commercial radio stations in Toledo and Columbus, Ohio and Grand Rapids and Gaylord, Michigan. Before moving to Mount Pleasant, she was a writer/photographer for the Gaylord Herald Times.

Judy Plays French horn in the Northern Michigan Brass Band, Central Michigan Area Concert Band and Gateway Band. She is an avid swimmer and gardener, and insists that plants—like people—thrive when they listen to classical music.

“Hi, I’m Gabby Russo, I’m an incoming freshmen and I’m from Manton Michigan. I’m here today to audition for cymbals in the CMU Marching Chips. Definitely nervous.

I’ve been in band for 8 years and honestly there’s just, there’s no other place like a band um it’s like a family anywhere you go and it’s just one big support system and I think that that’s really important for people to have when they’re going into a new situation, especially something like college.”


Dr. Amon Eady, Director of Choral Activities for the Central Michigan University School of Music joins Judy this afternoon to talk about Saturday's performance of "The Music of Duke Ellington" featuring the Festival Chorus and Jazz Lab I.
