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!

WFMU Kickstarter Billboard Update!

The last and final Kickstarter billboard will be installed very soon on Route 280 East in Newark, NJ. So, come say goodbye to Manson (once and for all) cause the new billboard is coming up very soon!


Unfortunately, we never received a cease and desist letter from Bieber’s lawyer, nor did he come in and perform a live set with Rihanna. However, we almost achieved meme status when it appeared in a photo roundup of the embarrassing viral bro website, The Chive.

So, whats next you ask? We’ll, if you backed this amazing project, rest assured that we are busy stuffing envelopes with all your goodies. Station Manager Ken already defiled his car with his bumper sticker, for best results, we suggest you do the same.

Thank you all for your support in this fun experiment!

Check out the Group Doueh Videocast from Monty Hall!

Check out the full videocast of Saharans psychedelicists’ Group Doueh, from their amazing October 7th gig at Monty Hall presented and aired on Brian Turner’s program. This family affair juxtaposes western elements of Hendrix and James Brown with the poetry of Hassania language in Saharawi folk tradition, all centered around a big band environment that includes two vocalists and some unhinged electric guitar!
