News from the Freeform Front

All hail the power of radio! WFMU's 2015 fundraising Marathon is coming your way, March 8-22! Get ready for stunts, prizes, hilarious and awkward DJ blather, and of course, our shiny new batch of swag! Hit this page for more information, this page to make a pledge, and drop this guy a line if you'd like to volunteer during the Marathon.
Don't miss WFMU Movie Night on April 2nd, featuring a screening of Peter Watkins' 1967 film "Privilege." Presented by Rich Hazelton of Inflatable Squirrel Carcass, this great rock 'n' roll film stars Paul Jones (sang "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" with Manfred Mann), and Jean Shrimpton (helped introduce the miniskirt). Upon initial release, the national theatre circuit in England would not show the film due to its "immoral nature." Tickets here.
Tons of WFMU DJs, pets and fixtures await your virtual adoption, in our 2015 Marathon Adoption Gallery! Help WFMU with a paid pledge of $180 or more and earn naming rights to a fixture, or donate $365 to adopt a DJ at the WFMU Magic Factory. Every marathon adoption comes with naming rights for the fixture in question, and an adorable little plaque affixed to it with your name on it. Pledge early to get first dibs!
