Make a pledge of any amount to WFMU this October and enter your furry (or feathered or scaled) friend into our first-ever mascot contest! Be sure to tell us your pet's name in the pledge comments, and upload a photo of your pet here. Don't miss out on the new swag, including our Under(water) Dog T-shirt and Illuminati Cat T-shirt!
Singles Going Steady Week returns! From Monday October 20th to Sunday October 26th, most WFMU DJs will be paying tribute to the little records with the (mostly) big holes. Tune in for seven days of seven inch records, as we celebrate our imaginary fundraiser and mascot contest this October.
The Hoof 'n' Mouth Slimfonia, a slimmed-down version of WFMU's live karaoke band, returns to the historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery this Saturday, October 25th, for the Ghost of Uncle Joe's Halloween benefit concert. It's a full day and night of tribute bands that are actually fun; the Hoof will tackle songs about death around 7:30. Dress up and drink up, the world's about to end!

Get ready for Halloween: stuff your face with candy corn, squeeze into that sexy nurse getup, and take a stroll through WFMU's graveyard of Halloween-themed specials from years past... Bill Kelly - listen | Dave the Spazz - listen | Rex - listen | Terre T - listen | Ken - listen
