News From the Freeform Front

Singles Going Steady Week Starts Monday!

The 45 r.p.m. record was born in 1949 and has seen ebbs and flows in its fortunes since then, but at WFMU this most portable of recorded music formats has never gone out of style. From October 18th through 24th, WFMU conducts its annual Singles Going Steady week when many WFMU DJs will play nothing but 45s on their shows. Tune in for the hits that time forgot and the obscurities that you never heard, all on those little records with the big holes!

“I’m a Swag for Life member. How do I pledge in the fall?”

If you’re a member of our Swag for Life monthly pledging program, you may be wondering how to contribute to our fall fundraiser. There are two ways: You can either make a one-time pledge in addition to your SFL, or you can make an increase to your existing SFL. To make a one-time pledge, just go to our donate page; to increase your monthly SFL pledge, drop us a line at and let us know how much you would like to bump up. Be sure to ask about additional swag you may be eligible for!

Kostume Karaoke with DJ Stashu Coming Soon!

Don your most creative Halloween costume, limber up your tonsils, and get ready to belt out some karaoke with the one and only DJ Stashu of Dance with Me, Stanley!

DJ Specials All Hellraiser Long!

WFMU DJs are putting together exciting radio specials all month long in conjunction with our October Hellraiser. What’s a Hellraiser you ask? Why it’s a month long celebration packed with events and specials. Tune in and remember why WFMU is a station like no other. Please support us and give us the ability to continue to bring you creative and unique programming!

WFMU’s Fall Fundraiser Is Underway!

Every October, WFMU conducts its Year End fund drive. It’s an off-air fundraiser conducted mostly by Internet and mail. Our DJs only mention it briefly once per show, but the Year End fundraiser is important for us since it gets us over the hump of the winter months – that time of year when the funds we raised in our spring marathon are beginning to dwindle. If you can, help us out with a donation and grab one of the two new T-shirts exclusive to this fall campaign.
