Will your pet be named WFMU's mascot for a full year?
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.
Need a manicure and a drink? Join Ken and Frangry (and maybe Andy and Michele) for a Seven Second Delay and Shut Up Weirdo Listener Meet-Up at Beauty Bar in Manhattan (231 E. 14th St), on Tuesday, Oct 28th (7:30pm)! Details and RSVP here.
