Heavy Airplay on WMFU – 2010’s Edition

We made a Spotify list of all the heavily played lists from the 2010s as a fun way to draw attention to how WFMU sounded like in the 2010s and all the artists we highlighted during that period. This effort was made possible due to the work of Olivia Bradley-Skill, Zoey Beatrice, Ruby, Ben, Edie, Jessica, Eliza, and Myriel. Artwork by Faye. Listen to the 2010s Edition here.

Attention Android Phone Listeners!

The official WFMU app in the Google Play Store is at the end of its digital life. We now recommend using the unofficial “Woof Moo” app which works much better and is still being updated, thanks to listener Stephen. Follow this link, or navigate to the Play Store and search for “Woof Moo.”

If you encounter long startup buffering times or unreliable streaming, especially if your Android version is too early to be supported by the current apps, note that Android-using listeners who encountered those problems have had good luck listening to our live streams via the TuneIn Radio service. Mainstream Android users can try the TuneIn Radio app from the Google Play Store, and users of Amazon devices can try the TuneIn Radio app from the Amazon Appstore.

Re:Mixology Archives

Re:Mixology was a radio show that aired on WFMU from 2002-2003 that featured a great selection of assorted leftfield, beat-oriented sound manipulators. Special-for-WFMU mixes from the likes of the DFA, Christian Marclay, Wayne Butane, and Felix Kubin were aired, along with performances in the WFMU studio from Peaches/Gonzales/Feist, Matmos, Evolution Control Committee and more! Archives are here.
