WFMU now on Apple TV

WFMU has just released an app for Apple TV called “WFMU On Demand,” built by Listener Tim! Once you grab the app, you can use your Apple TV (tvOS 9.2 or later) to listen to WFMU live streams and archives, view playlists and comments, and learn about goings on in the WFMUniverse. It’s a great way to use your idiot box in ways Philo T. Farnsworth never intended.

Volunteers needed

Ever wondered how we do so much great stuff here at WFMU and still smell fresh as a daisy? Our secret weapon is volunteers! WFMU’s awesome volunteer force helps us with everything from envelope stuffing and swag mailing, to keeping our music library organized and pricing stock for our Record Fair, to manning the door at Monty Hall and running the soundboard for live sessions. Want to get involved? E-mail Scott Williams!


WFMU is all caught up in Twitter — follow us so you’re the first to get links of life-altering importance, like photos of strange British folk rituals, the story of feminist punk in 33 songs, a tribute to the long lost Elcaset format (dig it, tape geeks), great song picks by WFMU DJs, and zillions of other fascinating ways to kill your productivity.

Edu-ma-cate yourself

If you make videos, or if you make music for videos, or if you just like learning new stuff, check out the Free Music Archive’s webinar and FAQ for videomakers: watch the video here. The FMA also has helpful resources for educators interested in using music for classroom projects, as well as a portal for musicians and audio producers.

Donate your unwanted records to WFMU!

WFMU seeks donations of used (but not damaged) record collections to fill holes in our library and to use for our next Record Fair (Apr 28-30, 2017). Unload your unwanted vinyl and get a tax write-off! Contact Matt Warwick if you’re seeking the path to enlightenment through the disposal of worldly pleasures. And, you know, a tax break.
