News from the Freeform Front

Woof Moo zip hoodies (limited qtys!), Radio Zombie and Alley Cat T-shirts, messenger bags, night lights, stickers, and more! Orders placed by Dec. 15th will arrive in time for Chrimbus.
WFMU Movie Night Debuts at our own Monty Hall next Thursday, December 4th at 8pm, with Jeff Krulik's latest film, 'Led Zeppelin Played Here,' following shorts by Station Manager Ken.
