The “Wake and Bake” Billboard is Up!

With the recent passing of Charles Manson, we thought it was the perfect time to ceremoniously take down the Rhianna, Bieber and Manson billboard and replace it with something everybody can enjoy, a Wake and Bake with Clay Pigeon billboard, designed by Kirsten Ulve!

Check out Station Manager Ken and Clay Pigeon as they visit the toxic field where the Newark billboard lives. As the Manson billboard comes down, Clay and Ken celebrate the moment by singing the Charles Manson song made famous by the Beach Boys- Cease to Exist.

Thanks to all the Kickstarter backers and voters! If you backed this Kickstarter project then you should have received your backer rewards by now. If you have any questions about your Kickstarter rewards please contact Kim Nolan from this page.

Get to Know Moondog, WFMU’s New Mascot

Some key factoids about WFMU’s new mascot: Moondog was rescued at a Farmer’s Market in Maryland by listeners Ann and John. He is nine months old, and lives on John’s farm in Sullivan County, NY. He’s been trained to to “play” the keyboard of a marimba which is strung up by the gate of his pen, as he tends to fight for his food, which he did to survive back in his toddler days. Moondog has grown to twice the size of his supposed pygmy goat status, so his goatly provenance is still a mystery. He enjoys music, cars and long walks in the woods. Lately he’s taken to imitating the neighbors’ dogs by going “woof” when he wants attention. Here is Moondog in action. More videos and photos are coming!
