Hearty thanks to all of the record dealers, volunteers, Brooklynites, and eager shoppers who made WFMU's 2015 Record Fair a success! We also want to thank Danny Kroha, Bambi Kino, The Baseball Project, Olivia Neutron John, Pramrod Sexena, and Conspiracy of Beards for entertaining the masses, and Sierra Nevada for donating beer. Props to our own Mr. Record Fair, Chris M., for wrangling such a fun weekend. Our 2016 Record Fair will be held sometime in the spring.
The WFMU documentary, Sex and Broadcasting, is coming to the Montclair Film Festival right here in NJ May 6th and 10th (tickets). And if you're in Canada, the film will be showing at the Canadian Week Music Festival in Toronto May 9th (1:30pm, tickets).
Buzzcocks guitarist and vocalist Steve Diggle was recently interviewed by Diane Kamikaze on WFMU! Take a listen to the interview to find out about Steve's first record purchase, his early influences, the Buzzcocks reunion tour, and more!
Where's my swag? Next week, we will begin the months-long process of mailing out swag to everyone who pledged to our 2015 Marathon (the more stuff you requested, the longer it will take), so thanks for your patience. If you made an unpaid pledge and never received a payment form, please contact Listener Services Honcho Joe McGasko here.
Don't miss a live set by the recently-revived neo-folk indie rock group Vetiver, Tues May 12th (9am-noon) on This is the Modern World with Trouble. Vetiver's new album is called "Complete Strangers," warm and sunny paired with a sense of being from another place and time.
