Compiled by Music Director Brian Turner.
Updated roughly every two weeks.

WFMU is a freeform station: thus the Playlist does not come as a directive from the Music Director, but more as a record as to which recordings are being played often.

Brian also reviews his new fave discs every month. Check out those reviews (and WFMU staff picks from the Old Bin) here.

These pages list Heavily Played Recordings and have separate lists for popular Jazz, Loud, New World, Beatbox and RPM "genres" of music, as perceived by the CMJ. Older lists may not have these secondary categories.
