wfmu online (oh yeah and they need cash)

WFMU has fairly consistently been one of the better stations in the country.
Why they don’t take their real audio streams and transitors to commercial radio
with one of those (what are they called 102.7 licenses or something?) low-cost FCC licenses created to fight clear channel’s encroaching monopoly I don’t know. But their playlists, shows, and everything are available online and sans live365’s b.s. Really one of the better archives of music out there, stumbled back upon it today while searching for more seigen ono, there’s also a 99 Records show in their archives, Brain Turner’s show, and the Gospel show after Brain are all amazing. Even their everyday rock heavy line up is better than 90% of the indie INDIE INDIE INDIE INDIE that eternally never endlessly congeals the veins of freeform radio like clear channel’s obession with Soundgarden 15 years after their genesis. The station, I gather, is a non-profit no-ads and is taking donations year round. Is it just me or is new york to expensive for art these days? Tonic going under, Cggbs going under, etc.
If only radio stations could move to Astoria with the hipsters that support it.

peace,
