News From the Freeform Front

Transmitter Problemos at 91.1 FM

WFMU's 91.1 FM signal is having problems due to the heat wave, and goes off the air intermittently during the hottest part of the day. Please bear with us. In the meantime, all of our streams are working just fine (listen: MP3 | Pop-Up), and our signals at 90.1 and 91.9 FM are rocking harder than ever to make up for the difference.
