WFMU Staffers' Brushes with Fame Mix-n-Match

Compiled by Brian Turner

It's true. there are a few WFMU staffers who can walk down the street and be shrieked at by adoring fans, but for the most part, they remain on the fringe between recognition and anonymity. They do, however, love to harrass and bond with the famous and infamous. Mix and match WFMU DJs and fill-in DJs with their glorious brushes with the stars! Note: some FMUers match with several occurences.
