Singles Going Steady Week Coming October 15th!

The 45 r.p.m. record was born in 1949 and has seen ebbs and flows in its fortunes since then, but at WFMU this most portable of recorded music formats has never gone out of style. From October 15th through October 21st, WFMU conducts its annual Singles Going Steady week when many WFMU DJs will play nothing but 45s on their shows. Tune in for the hits that time forgot and the obscurities that you never heard, all on those little records with the big holes!
