Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Avatar 2:24pm Jesse Kaminsky:

For everyone experiencing the forced social distancing isolation right now remember how important radio can be in connecting people across a spatial divide. This kind of community radio is really important at a time like this and will be even more so in the future. It's not a part of any government's agenda, the strength has to come from you. We really truly need you to complete us! Pledge to pledge.wfmu.org...
