Helmed by mash-up artist and producer Mr. Fab,  Sheena’s Jungle Room is a 24/7 stream loosely inspired by mid-century sleaze culture. Right now it has four live DJ shows, and more will be added soon.

Fred Lane Doc Screens at Monty Hall

With his goggle glasses, handlebar moustache, goatee, and face covered in Band-Aids, Rev. Fred Lane looked like the most demented lounge singer on earth. In a way, that’s exactly what he was. For a short time in the ’80s, his dark-humored and Dada-inspired jazz and swing stylings confused and amused adventurous listeners everywhere. Now a documentary has been made about him called Icepick to the Moon, and it will be screening at Monty Hall on Friday, November 30th at 8 p.m. It’s just $12 to get in, so get your tickets now!

Presenting Big Mama, WFMU’s Mascot for 2018–2019!

After very carefully reviewing all of the many wonderful entries we received for our mascot contest during this year’s October fundraiser, we have chosen a winner: Big Mama! Big Mama is a five-year old South American Horned Frog owned by Listener Nicole from Highland Park. Congratulations, Nicole, and a warm and froggy WFMU welcome to Big Mama!
