@Andrew: Free format just means the DJ can play whatever he wants, free from management interference (I think). That applies even if the DJ plays nothing but Klingon funeral dirges and calls his show "Krazy Karl's Extremely Angry Aliens Sounding Sad".

FMU is totally independant & sponsor-free & the best station on Earth - unless I remain uninformed (which happens time to time) - & that's Free enuff fer moi...
