Remembering Wm. Berger & My Castle Of Quiet

Wm. (Bill) Berger was a beloved friend, musician, and longtime WFMU DJ. His long-running program, My Castle Of Quiet“,” had 16 years of show archives and his own Free Music Archive curator page is home to nearly 200 live tracks from his radio show. Wm. Berger will be remembered for his good humor, kind spirit, and devoted love of music and film. He was well-known at WFMU and his legacy will live on through the WFMU archives and the lasting influence he made on everyone he met. He will be dearly missed.
You can find his WFMU archive here, his blog here, and his record label here.

The new schedule is in effect from Sept 2017- June 2018

The new WFMU schedule is now in effect from September 11th through June 4th, 2018. Some old shows return and some fresh new blood is injected into our dysfunctional radio famille. Take a gander here to see the longer version that includes full show descriptions.
