Few radio stations really exist in the world these days, let alone radio stations that play Explosions in the Sky (who are featured in our current downloadable issue), Lalo Schifrin, and the Eternals in the same set, which is why we are currently raising our fists (and wallets) in the air to salute local fave callsign WFMU. The homebrothers and sisters at the ’Mu are currently in the middle of their 2007 Fundraising Marathon, and if you’re thoughtful/kindhearted/forthright enough to fork over the clams, not only do you get a point on the Good Peoples map shown above, but you can get all sorts of strange and unique thankyou prizes, like custom DJ mixes, weird beard t-shirts and/or a messenger bag. But obviously, the biggest payoff is just knowing that you supported a station that digs bedroom recordings, gospel throwdowns, vanity 45s and hash hazy strumming as much as we all do.
Tune In, Pony Up
