News From the Freeform Front

Singles Going Steady Week

Singles Going Steady Week is ON! From Monday October 24th to Sunday October 30th, most WFMU DJs will be paying tribute to the little records with the (mostly) big holes. Tune in for seven days of seven inch records, as we celebrate our silent fundraiser and mascot contest this October.

Pledge to WFMU this October

WFMU faces a terrifying challenge and we need your support! Nachum Segal and JM in the AM are moving on: we’ll lose their supporters, but we’ll gain back the most prime slot on the radio. Help us make our goal by midnight on Halloween night! Make a pledge of any amount to WFMU and enter your pet into our mascot contest (check out last year’s contestants here)! Be sure to tell us your pet’s name in the pledge comments, and upload a photo of your pet here. Don’t miss out on the new swag, including our Typographic Critters T-shirt and Malevolent Bunny T-shirt (DJ Premiums and Prize Warehouse items up for grabs as well)!

Simpsons Club Halloween Meet-up – Oct 31st

Join Simpsons Time host Amanda Nazario for a listener meet-up and Simpsons-watching party at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg on Halloween night, Monday, Oct 31st (9pm-mid). Scary Simpsons all night long; our favorite Treehouse segments. RSVP here.
