UMES 30

UMES 30 is a half-hour locally produced talk show covering a variety of topics featuring guests from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, the local community, and from around the country.

  

In 1984, John R. Lamkin II recorded and released a self-produced album on vinyl called ‘Hot’.

That album, with the exception of one track, contains his own original compositions and arrangements.

Lamkin later joined the faculty at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore as a professor in the Fine Arts Department.

While there, he directed the UMES Jazz and Wind Ensembles, taught jazz history, and provided instruction to students learning to play brass, percussion and string instruments.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.

It’s believed that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way the human brain processes pain signals.

According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from this condition.

75 to 90 percent of the people who have fibromyalgia are women and the disorder is often seen in families, among siblings, or mothers and their children.
