News From the Freeform Front

Tom Verlaine Remembered

We at WFMU were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Tom Verlaine, one of the most distinctive guitarists in all of rock music. Aside from his work with Television and as a solo artist, Tom was also well-known to WFMU staff as a regular customer at our annual Record Fairs. We like to think that he brought some of the records he found there with him when he guested on Gaylord Fields‘ program in 2006. Rather than discuss his own music, Tom played some of his favorite records and talked about them. Listen to this unusual archive here.
