WFMU's new Winter and Spring Schedule has been announced and runs November 17th, 2014 - June 8th, 2015. Some old shows return and some new people join our dysfunctional radio famille. Take a gander here to see a long, ugly version that includes hosts' show descriptions.
The one and only Jonathan Richman stops by Michael Shelley's show on Sat, Nov 22nd (11am-1pm)! Tune in to hear what's new with the ex-Modern Lovers singer-songwriter, who released an excellent collection of recent solo works entitled "No Me Quejo De Mi Estrella" (Munster) earlier this year.
Congratulations to Muuro the dalmatian, WFMU's official mascot for the next year! Muuro resides with listeners Timo and Jo in Estonia (who generously pledged to our imaginary fundraiser). We're proud to plaster this pup's mug (and her infectious smile) all over wfmu.org in the coming months. Photo remix contests to come! Be sure to check out all of the amazing pets who were entered into our mascot contestright here.
Coming up on Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison on Saturday, November 22nd from 6-9AM: Vashti Bunyan's 1970 album, "Just Another Diamond Day", is considered one of the keystone recordings of that UK music scene, as its sound and backstory seem the very distillation of that time and place. Her rediscovery by a new generation of musicians led to her 2005 "Lookaftering" and now her brand new "Heartleap", which bookend her 1970 LP.
Cleveland artpunk group X_X (members of Electric Eels/Mirrors/Rocket From the Tombs) performs live at Monty Hall on Sunday, Dec 7th at 7pm, presented by Brian Turner! Opening acts will be psych duo Blues Control and the remains of NYC noiseniks Sightings, Silk Purse. Tickets $10 | FB event
